    Wink Expired vehicle license in Namibia

    A friend was stopped 50 km north of Windhoek. Vehicle License had expired end of January 2019.
    A fine of N$1000 to be paid in Windhoek at main police station, etc.
    Not arrested but need to get license to them.
    Can I go and renew license here at Mossel Bay without the necessary green paper ,etc and fax it to them.

    You can renew your friend's licence, but you will require a certified copy of his ID.

    You can get the form below.

    You can then go to the police station and have a copy thereof certified, and send that through to him. It should be accepted in a pinch (the police/metro are not fond of these copies though).

    You cannot fax him the license to him in Namibia. You need to send the original to him by courier. How long is he in Namibia. If he is longer than 3 month here he might get problems again as he needs o have the vehicle registered in Namibia. From time time they so roadblocks in Windhoek to find vehicle that is here to long as the need to pay roadtaxes.

    If you renew someoneís vehicle license you will need a letter of authority, in East London anyway.

    Yes that I will have, but it's not the original but a copy via mail/whatsapp.
    Everything depends on the person I am pitching this story to.

    Go to the Post Office, they're much faster and it's less of a hassle.

    If the letter of authority is a good printout you should be good to go.

    My sister used to do my father's licence renewals for him. Just took along a copy of his ID and completed the proxy section of the form.

    In the Southern Cape the Post Office do not do vehicle licenses.
    The second part of your message gives us hope. ☺

    We used to receive notifications. Iíll admit, I went clean over my expiry date and a day before heading to Botswana realized my drivers license had expired. Managed by the skin of by teeth to get a temporary.

    I still receive an SABC sms reminder weeks prior so how hard can it be for everything else?

    Hereís the traffic department reason.

    Who here does a pre-trip inspection before getting into a car. My guess is absolutely no one.

    2. I didn't receive a licence-renewal notice, why is that?
    JPSA: "While the RTMC Act does not place a duty on it to send out licence renewal reminders, it has done so since its formation and the R36.00 transaction fee on eNaTIS transactions is paid to the RTMC. It is not clear whether the specific point of failure is attributable to the SA Post Office, the RTMC or eNaTIS itself, but whatever the reason behind it is, vehicle owners are advised to check their licence discs regularly."
    "Motorists are reminded that checking the validity of their licence disc on their vehicle is part of the pre-trip inspection which should be performed before driving, not just at the K53 driving licence test."

    You need the following:

    - letter of authority
    - signed application to licence a motor vehicle (signed by owner and owners proxy {that's you})
    - original reg documents

    Then courier the disk up to Nam.

    My question is what person leaves the country without checking his licence disk? I haven't received a reminder since we moved to North West, but the traffic department expects you to check your vehicle before you drive every day, and a simple inspection of the licence disk should be part of this check.

    Are you insane?

    Going into the SADC countries and even further without the mandatory equipment and without a licensed and roadworthy vehicle will easily have you in a world of pain, and in certain parts of Moz, in a holding cell.

    Situations like this happen, but I can't imagine not doing a pre-trip inspection on all the documentation as well as inspection of the vehicle and trailer itself before embarking on any long-distance trip, especially when crossing borders.

    One should:
    Let your vehicle and trailer insurance know that you are out of the country
    Take your vehicle registration and licensing documents or certified copies thereof
    Inform your medical aid to ensure that you are covered
    Order the currency of the countries that will be visited
    Inform your bank that you might be using your card cross border.
