Checking vehicle license status
« on: March 30, 2012, 04:52:45 pm »
Just wondering if there is a way of checking a vehicle's current license status? I only have the registration number.

I have the option of buying a bike from a deceased estate, but don't want to bother the family with the details right now... no one knows when last the license fees were paid.

They'll do that? I think I tried that a couple of years ago when looking at buying a Jeep, and they w/couldn't  help me. Can't remember the excuse; maybe I was just interrupting her lunch break.

Will try tomorrow.

The call center number is not operational during lock down (I thought government department are back under level 3?), and the Plumbstead number (021 710 8140) no longer exists  ???
Anyone else have a contact that can help a friend out to check the status of a vehicle?
