Did you know?
WHY does your vehicle need proof of roadworthiness apart from the obvious aspects like worn tyres and failing brakes being a safety hazard?
The government website (www.gov.za) indicates that you have to have your vehicle undergo a roadworthy test before it is registered in your name. In addition:
If your vehicle is used for public transport or is a heavy-load vehicle it must be tested every year – but an important note to bus owners – buses must be tested every six months.
It is the owner’s responsibility to have the vehicle tested – so no passing the buck! Such tests can be done at a private or a public vehicle testing station.
Upon completion, if your vehicle passes the test, a notice is issued. – Rep reporter
