you gotta get microdotted!!!
« on: September 02, 2012, 02:28:37 pm »
Amendments to the National Road Traffic Act will come into force on 01 September 2012, and will mean that vehicle owners will need to have their vehicles microdotted or verify that the vehicles have microdot identification (Government Gazette 35130 dated 09 March 2012).

In addition, the Second Hands Goods Act of 2009 which governs the handling of second hand (used goods), also stipulates under Regulation 24 (1) (2) (d), that dealers need to keep a second hands goods register and record all its particulars; including its microdot identification.

What all these provisions mean, in a nutshell is that:-

A new or second-hand vehicle registered after 1 September 2012 must be fitted with microdots (fitted by OEM’s, MIB’s and motor dealers – not operators)
A vehicle presented for Police Clearance after 1 September 2012, should also be fitted with microdots; or its microdot identification should be verified.
Vehicles traded in to motor dealers, should they have a microdot identification, should then be verified before being registered in the dealer’s register.

This is only relevant when a vehicle change ownership. No panic needed

Ja....but i have a bike i need to get into my name.... >:(
I very much doubt queenstown in the eastern cape will have any cooking clue tho hahahaha.
It's a good idea, but as mentioned.......in SA it'll be all about who got the contract to do it......and how badly they will mess it up
BMW F650 DAKAR ; BMW 650 X-Challenge ; YAMAHA 660 TENERE ; BMW 800 GS KTM 200EXC. Now - KTM 950 Adventure S, KTM 250 XC-W and BMW 450 Rally

if u are interested in something no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead, luke warm is no good, hot is no good either, white hot and passionate is the only thing to be...

That is expensive - perhaps the public should go beserk and agree to only pay R500!  Just like e-tolling!  We will have to be a lot more militant in South Africa in the future.  We are not cash cows!

Jippy anther good idea implemented in a kak way.

Reading that very broadly this will apply to all vehicles meaning that this will now include anything with a numberplate on it.  >:(


Somewhere along the line this fucking country is going to get the better of me.

A JZ family member for sure......

Not entirely a bad thing to have, but it amazes me that we have to spend money because the legal system is a fark up, and we allow Nigerians into SA in their droves......

Another gravy train initiative that will not be ready for implementation on the specified date because they are kak useless and couldn't organize a piss-up in a brewery! The story of corruption, tender fraud, maladministration, and incompetence will no doubt rein supreme on this one too as usual!  ::)  :-\

Mornin Dawgs,

Daar is al klaar onsekerheid met dit ding.

Had a talk with my road worthy station officer about this. He gave me a copy of the page out of the 09 March 2012 Government Gazette. He pointed this out, and I quote...

"3. Regulation 56 of the Regulations is hereby amended by-

a) the insertion of the following subregulation after subregulation (1):

"(1A) A motor vehicle registered for the first time in the Republic on or after 1 September 2012, shall be fitted with microdots ....." unquote.

NOTE: A motor vehicle registered for the first time in the Republic . That is a NEW vehicle, not re-registered.

So...for now, it looks like secondhand vehicles are not on under fire, BUT will be very soon. Wees eers rustig...ons worry weer later.    :ricky:

Agreed, in the good ol' days we paid R90-00 for one.
Now you can get 3000 for R995-00.
Bargain!!!  :mwink: :biggrin:
