Can I renew My car licence at spar

I always go to my local municipality 07h50 and wait in line for them to open, in and out in under 20 minutes every year.
But only if you do it Tuesday to Thursday and never just after pay day, rather go mid month around the 15th.
All mondays are very busy as people are queueing who just bought their new vehicles over the weekend.
All fridays are busy and I have yet to figure this one out.
But my method has worked well every single year.

Documents Required For Renewal of Car Licence Disc

Motor vehicle licence disc is being renewed every year. However, licence disc for buses is renewed every six months as their roadworthiness certificate is valid for only six months. While visiting the licencing centers for renewal services, you’ll need the following documents if the car is registered in your name;

  • Identity document and a copy of it
  • Old licence disc
  • Motor licence renewal notice (MVL2 Form)
  • If you didn’t receive the renewal notice, complete the ALV Form (Application for Licencing of Motor Vehicle) and submit it.
  • Proof of residential address. For instance, a utility bill. If the utility bill doesn’t bear your name, the bill owner should make an affidavit that declares that you live at the address. The affidavit must be attached to the utility bill.
  • A letter with an official date stamp from the ward councilor, which confirms your residential address, is required if you reside in an informal settlement.

If the car is registered under the name of an organization or company, the documents required are as follows;

  • Letter of proxy
  • Business certificate of the organization
  • Identity document of proxy
  • Motor licence renewal notice (MVL2 Form)
  • If you didn’t receive the renewal notice, complete the ALV Form (Application for Licencing of Motor Vehicle) and submit it.
