    Default License renewal???

    Hello my friends, this is Norway calling. Since I'm living in Europe my South African friend takes care of the South African paperwork for my Defender tdi300 1996(1997?). Now he's going to renew the disc and he asks for ZAR 4.500.
    "That can't be! When I owned it, the license was around ZAR 315!" my friend told me and "refused" to transfer the money until I had looked into the matter. Anyone knows the 2022 disc renewal cost in Western Cape for a Landy like mine?

    The 2020 licence fees appear to be still valid. Licence fees are charged according to vehicle weight.

    Thank You so much, my friend. I'm an overseas foreigner, I can't be trusted to correctly read this table. (I don't have the needed papers available) how much for a Land Rover defender? Please help!

    Ok, seeing as nobody else has posted the exact cost, I estimate it to between R1000-R1200 per year.

    There are penalties and back payments if your vehicle licence has expired or has not been paid yearly.

    Did you ask your SA friend for a cost breakdown?

    What does highlighted portion mean?

    We haven't seen fees like that for many years

    Have 3 Landys and the last few was about 1200 I think a few months ago,
    unless licence was not renewed for the last year or two then I donít see how he can ask that much,
    you can also look into weQ4u they do licenses for ppl and very good

    I can only assume (maybe incorrectly) that your friend did not renew the license annually and allowed it to expire.
    That generates monthly penalties and adds to the ultimate (normal) renewal fee.
    Hope that helps.

    Then it should be in the area of R750.

    My 300Tdi is 2020Kg tara, so it's a bit more expensive.

    He is not the kind if friend I'd like to have. I could drive to CK, renew it, and you can buy me a case of beers, for less than half of that price.

    Thanks all for your help!

    I must admit, I'm still in doubt whether I'm misunderstanding something OR if "friend" actually is taking me for a ride 😳

    Whatever, I've once again been urged to put everything on hold AND have the vehicle registration in my own name. That's easier said than done me being a foreigner without residential address in SA. I've already had my Malmsbury lawyer look into the matter. Was put on hold due to the need for me to be present in person. Covid restrictions didn't make that any easier . . .

    The disc renewal deadline is May 31st. I hope an expired disc won't make the new registration any more difficult than it already seems to be 🙈😳


    My learned friend in Malmsbury is going to call me back later today or tomorrow 👍 He's the one talking on my behalf to the traffic department in Malmsbury last year. We all hope this will proceed smoothly 🙏
