The "early" renewal also means that we are not really getting a full 10 year (or 5 year term), especially since the CFR provide the issue date for the licence and then takes anywhere up to 2-3 months to return the licence card to the DFO for collection by the FA owner. It's a conspiracy, I tell you...

Honestly I really dont mind loosing up to 6 months on my 10 year renewal. Compared to arriving after 90 days and having to hand in or enter into some sort of setup SAPS must still work out around it.
