    Ah yes - but do you mean a South African passport? I don't have one of them, sadly. Nor a permanent residency visa (more sadness).

    Banks, etc, are happy to use my non-SA passport as proof of identity, but for RICA, the government wanted proof of residency as well. I own property in SA (had to have a place to keep the Landy) but I suspect not too many non-SA citizens are queuing up to get police clearance certificates on their SA-registered vehicles.

    So,
    maybe the data below should be made a 'Sticky'...





    Procedure for obtaining a Vehicle Clearance Certificate for Travel to Zim & other African countries.
    1. Take your i) Passport, ii) Drivers's License, iii) Vehicle Registration Docs
    2. Go to the licensing Dept (Civic Centre, Station Rd in the case of RDPT).
    3. Queue (need to comlete no forms at this stage).
    4. They will issue you with a form - very brief document.
    5. Complete it.
    6. Hand it in.
    7. They will issue with a RPC form (completed by their printer).
    8. You take the RPC & the vehicle concerned plus items i), ii) & iii) above to your local VINN, Vehicle Inspectorate (an SAPS function). (In the case of Roodepoort it is in Van Eck St, Chamdor).
    9. You pull up in the queue to have the vehicle inspected. Stay in the vehicle.
    10. When it's your turn, hand them the documents & open the bonnet (or hood if it's a Jeep).
    11. Once they have finished, they hand you the Inspection Form they completed, plus your RPC.
    12. Take the Inspection Form, RPC, Passport (I'd also carry the Registration Docs - just in case)... & go queue in the office.
    13. When it's your turn give them the PRPC, Inspection form & Passport.
    14. They process the paperwork & give you back your Passport.
    15. You then wait.
    16. They call you buy name, give you two sheets of paper.
    17. You take the papers (basically an approved clerance document) back to the licensing Dept.
    18. You queue again, hand in the papers & within a minute you get handed your Vehicle Clearance Certificate.
    The process can take as little as 2 hours, but may be longer. I took 4 hours due to not knowing the procedure.

    There are NO costs involved i.e. you pay NOTHING.
    OK, mine is also done.

    According to the Police Captain at Chamdor, you should not take the RPC back to the Licensing Department, Only when you come back from your trip.
    If you take it back to Licensing, they will consider your vehicle as exported.

    My friend did exactly this in Benoni, took the RPC back to the Licensing Dept. before leaving. When he tried to renew his license long after he came back he was told the car is out of the country so he had to reverse this. Asked him if he will get a certificate again and he said, never.

    Remember to get your RPC from your local License Department first.

    OK, so I went today to renew my license disk for the Landy.
    They did not want to give it to me, WHY?
    Because I forgot to take my Police Clearance certificate back to the Licensing Department.
    They issued the disk, but I first have to take the Police Clearance back and then they will give it to me
