    Default Re: Re-licensing? AVOID THIS TRAP!!!

    Applied for my first renewal on Tuesday (2017-05-30). Got the SMS immediately, but the wait begins.

    Make sure you renew 90 BEFORE your license and competence expires.


    Competence expires every 5 years.

    Self-Defense license expires ever 5 years.

    1. Four unobscured passport size colour photographs, not older than three months (two photographs for the firearm licence and two for the application for a competence certificate).
    2. Copy of official identity document x4 (two for the firearm licence and two for the application for a competence certificate).
    3. Copy of original firearm licence, for renewal x2
    4. Copy of training certificate obtained from an accredited training provider
    5. Copy of competency certificate Cxxxxxx.
    6. Application for a competence certificate - SAPS 517(g)
    7. Application for renewal of licence - SAPS 518(a)
    8. Annexure of firearm licence – SAPS 21
    9. Questionaire for references (Spouse) – SAPS 86
    10. Questionaire for references (Friend) – SAPS 86
    11. Motivation for renewal document.
    12. Firearm Safe document.
    13. Additional supporting documentation.
    14. Proof of payment R70-00 x 2 = R140-00 (R70-00 for the firearm licence and R70-00 for the application for a competence certificate).

    The above list is what I used and my DFO was happy.

    Be careful of the YES/NO questions in Annexure of firearm licence – SAPS 21 they very tricky, and in fact don't make sense.
    But anyway.
    Oh my word, is this still the "accepted" info on renewing a SD license? This looks and sounds so complicated :(

    Even SAPS are not consistent in what is required. I renewed my SD licence in August and it has been approved. I submitted a motivation, one testimonial, my existing competency certificate and the SAPS forms required (excluding competency renewal). My DFO said that competency does not have to be renewed as it was still valid until my existing licence expired in January 2018. As long as the licence is renewed before that date, the competency remains valid as the FCA says the competency certificate remains valid for as long as the licence is valid.

    Then my son renews his licence in Cape Town and is required to submit at least three testimonials, renewal forms for both licence & competency together with full motivations, new safe inspection done etc, (the whole nine yards).

    So best is let your DFO tell you what they want at that station & go with it.
