Sorry for the hijack, but I want to find out about riding my 1958 BSA Bantam on the road after I have restored it.
Overseas the people can buy a 'PERMIT" that allows them to ride such a bike on the road for a set number of times a year to shows and club meetings.
I really feel it is pointless getting it registered and I ride it 2 or 3 times a year only and have to pay a yearly license fee.

Dankie

This is what you need to do

1. Make a sworn affidavit at SAPS that you have converted the bike to road use and fitted all items required by roadworthy - indicators, hooters, lights, etc
2. Go to SABS with the bike and all docs and get a LETTER OF AUTHORITY that vehicle complies with South African road traffic act requirements
3. Go to roadworthy centre and obtain a GROSS VEHICLE MASS certificate and a ROADWORTHY CERTIFICATE
4. Submit all of the above at your local license and reg office , together with your ID, address and attached form and apply to have the class of the vehicle changed on Natis to on road use - if they cannot do it there it will be sent away to Dept of Transport Head Office in Pretoria

The bike may need to go for police clearance as well - nobody can really give me any confirmation on this - If I were you I would do it anyway just so you have all your bases covered - to do this you must request a RPC form from lic & reg office and have bike microdotted before police clearance is done

Prepare yourself for a real schlep / admin nightmare

Unless the bike is in the most amazing super condition at the most amazing giveaway price it is not worth the effort involved BUT that's just my opinion

It seems that the Natis rules and regs differ in every province - I know the Western Cape system fairly well but I see you are from Gauteng so different rules may and probably will apply in this complicated country of ours.

2 options

1. Copy number plate and license disc from another bike and just use this - not legal but perfectly acceptable under the Constitution of the New South Africa

2. Jump through all the hoops and hurdles and apply to have the bike registered - all of the above steps in my other reply will be needed to be done - providing you have papers for the bike.

If you don't have papers it becomes even more difficult and you will have to contact the Dept of Transport and find out from them what they require - at the end of the day if and when you get it right the vehicle will be registered as a 2015 model because that is when it was introduced on to the Natis system.

You can also apply to have the vehicle classed as a "classic" and you will pay a reduced annual license fee - about half of normal - license fees are based on the weight of the vehicle

Ja - ek is redelik vlot in die taal en so effens tweetalig

Ek kan speak and lees Afrikaans baie deliciously

Woody.
ekt n 59 kombi.
ek moes n paar jaar trug n brief van n motorklub aanheg om die ouderdom van kar te bevestig en dat ek aan hulle behoort.
ek betaal nou minder as n R100 n jaar. gewone prys is R400+.

so. jy het redelike goedkoop opsie.

trek hulle jou af met verkeerde nommerplaat, OEPS!! dit gaan meer kos.

Koop eerder a standaard E met die regte clocks en padwaardigheids goeters op, daar is baie van hulle en is almal op die pad. Die bike wat jy na kyk is dalk n ou enduro model wat gemodify is. Goedkoop is duurkoop.
