Hello everyone
we are now 8 months 'on the road' full-timers and time has come to renew van licence, no big deal BUT, we do not have any permanent residential address to fall back on! Is there any trick/s to follow? Your suggestion is appreciated.

If you have children or relative with a fixed address, use them to give you a letter stating that you reside with them.  You will also need a copy of their rates and taxes or electricity bill. You will have to go their respective licensing department to do your license but it will have to be in the same province where your vehicle was originally registered.

Thanks Ian
yes I understand but that's where is the problem, kids are abroad and those that can help living out of province. I did get a letter from the caravan park owner where I am living now, same province too, so will try and see what the authority have to say. If however they insist that one must have a permanent place to stay I'll be left with no option but to drive without licence and take the 'leagl eagel' way ???
kind regards

Hi Jan,

For a proof of address there are many documents that can be used. Bank statement, cell phone account, telkom account, etc.

Change ur address to a place where you are now and stay there until you can get a statement with the residential street address of the place so that it can be used as proof of address.

Unfortunately any new account will need a proof of address.

See valid documents below.

Jan.
We had the same issue when we started going fulltime, fortunately we still have our home although being rented we use this as our physical address. I had discussions with my bank and with the fica authoroties regarding the fica issue while on the road fulltime, neither had an answer to the problem. The bloke at the fica offices advised me to use my property address even if we are not currently living there.
It seems we are forced to go the crooked way. Rent a room from one of your friends who have their own property, draw up a lease agreement and use that.

Scan the license disk, photo shop the date and off you go, I presume it's legal in SAtongue-out

Gaan praat met hulle en verduidelik, soms vra hulle nie eens nie, veral as jy die hernuwings sertifikaat het nie, maar ek het al uitgeneem sonder die bewys van adres.

Hello every one, time to feed back on my licence renewal and document used in support of proof of residential address. Well it was quite simple, as Ian suggested to use one of the many documents available. I used current year Tv licence and bank statement :-) what can I say !! Thank you all for support

Looks like the licencing department has for whatever reason decided to send out notifications about license renewals again.

I have recieved one for my caravan and one for my wife small car. Thus it is not nessesary to fill in that forms again and make copies of ID and proof of adress. Like previously you just take the notification and go pay your fees no problem.

Limpopo licencing department failed to send out reminders this year so we drove to the Southern Cape unlicenced and because of that I got a R500 fine at Swellendam for my car.  On my way back, I was stopped near Bloemfontein with the caravan in tow.  I argued that the fine I paid covered me until  I was able to pay my licence.  The kind lady did not buy that but showed me mercy.  Luckily she did not look at the caravan's disk too.  For our five vehicles I was fined about R1500 for late licencing so with the R500 fine, it cost me about R2000 which is more that the cost of the actual licences.  I wonder if perhaps they intentionally do not send out reminders as many motorists probably forget about this and they therefore make much more on their licences.

I you have an insurance claim while technically unlicenced, you claim might probably be refused too, not that a little paper disk makes your car more or less roadworthy!
