What documents do I need for disc renewal?

To renew your vehicle license disc in South Africa, you will typically need the following documents:

  1. The original and valid Motor Vehicle License Renewal Notice (MVL2) form. This form is usually sent to you by post or email and contains details about your vehicle, license expiry date, and the amount you need to pay for the renewal.
  2. Your South African ID book or card, or a valid passport if you are a foreign national.
  3. Proof of residential address. This can be in the form of a utility bill, bank statement, or any other document that confirms your residential address.
  4. If your vehicle is financed, you will need to bring along a copy of your vehicle’s registration certificate (logbook) and a letter from the bank or financial institution confirming that you have permission to renew the license disc.
  5. If you are renewing the license disc on behalf of a company, you will need to bring along a letter of authority from the company and a copy of the company’s registration documents.
  6. Payment for the license renewal fee. You can pay in cash, by debit or credit card, or with a postal order.

Note that if your vehicle requires a roadworthy certificate, you will need to obtain one before you can renew your license. Additionally, if your license disc has been lost or damaged, you will need to apply for a replacement before you can renew it.
