No, in South Africa, you cannot register a car in your name without a valid roadworthy certificate. A roadworthy certificate is a legal requirement to ensure that the vehicle is in a safe and roadworthy condition. It confirms that the vehicle has passed a thorough inspection by an authorized roadworthy testing station.

When registering a car in your name, you will typically be asked to provide a valid roadworthy certificate along with other necessary documents, such as proof of ownership, identification documents, and completed registration forms. The roadworthy certificate serves as evidence that the vehicle meets the required safety standards and is suitable for use on public roads.

Without a roadworthy certificate, you will not be able to complete the registration process. It is important to ensure that the vehicle undergoes a roadworthy inspection and obtains a valid certificate before attempting to register it in your name.
