Some Important Information From Comments

Comments:
1. So even on this forum, no one rates or thank them for their services, we all paid and didn’t get what we wanted, this has to be a scam and need to be reported well as nothing is happening and we shared our documents with valid identifications and addresses before forgetting also losing our money as they don’t refund and wasted our time as now we are driving with Cars with no disk and it is an offense and our insurances won’t cover us if something happens also we need to pay again with areas now.

2. 100% a scam! Paid in Feb, the application was rejected, and absolutely no response to my tickets. I called SAPO helpline and they said, there was no one they could transfer my call to. The lady I spoke to, forwarded my email to someone in the motor license department, and suddenly my application status changed to REFUND. That was in March, I have still not received any money.

3. Absolutely terrible service. Waited over a week after providing all documents and payment just for the application to be declined for no valid reason. Resubmitted the same documents. It’s going to take several weeks back and forth with extremely delayed communication. It’s almost like they are deliberately delaying the process for you to pay penalties for the license once it expires. It is very sad the state of service delivery in South Africa. You are much better off waiting in line in person.

Information:
Most of the commenters commented that, they paid for renewal but their application got declined after payment.

    They appear to selectively respond to queries.

    My advice is don’t try renew your vehicle license through the SAPOMVL online. If there are any issues (there will be…) you will more than likely not get your payment back. I have been trying for 7 months. No response to my 20+ messages and requests – even on their FB page and social media. Don’t !!

  6. Tamlyn

    I paid for my trailer license renewal, there was an issue so I requested a refund. I’ve been waiting weeks now with no answer. Soooo frustrating, just do your job please!!

      100% a scam! Paid in Feb, the application was rejected, and absolutely no response to my tickets. I called SAPO helpline and they said there was no one they could transfer my call to. The lady I spoke to, Pamela forwarded my email to someone in the motor license department, and suddenly my application status changed to REFUND. That was in March, I have still not received any money.

  8. Mthokozisi NDaba

    I am still waiting till today but I renewed my license disk on the 3rd of February 2022. Now I have more than 100 references sending them emails but no reply other than reference. Even if I coppy the previous reference they come with another reference. the onlything they good with is reference. Their system is crap and they should just refund us.

  9. Keobakile

    Paid on 02 Feb and the system declined renewal. Has anyone managed to get their money back. If so please guide us.

  10. Johan Blom

    I payed R1969 on thw 2nd or March, I have send mail did there ticket system. Nothing. They do not answer mail or messages or anything. There is no way to contact them. I just want my money back. I cannot afford to pay for the same thing twice, If any body got any way to get in contact with them. Please tell. I’m getting desperate

  11. Pat Grimbeek

    Is this a scam? I paid for my renewal on 1 February 2022 for a license that expired on 28 February. Despite numerous follow up mails, I cannot get a response so had to renew the license by another method. I am now faced with an uphill battle to get a refund. There is no contact number to phone. I am looking for a forum to report this as I believe it must be a scam.

  12. J

    Horrible! I have paid on 6 February and still waiting. No replies on queries!!

  13. Benny

  14. Thandolwethu

    2. Lalitha Naidoo

      Hi Denver
      kindly advise how I can get my money back

    3. Aleesha

      *PLEASE READ – POSSIBLE FIX* Hi everyone , I experienced the same issue where I paid for the application which was later rejected . Payment was made in March. I spent months trying to log tickets and get in contact with them to no avail. Then, a little while ago I requested a refund form on their Facebook page and put down my email address with it . Within the same day I got an email with the form attached from a lady who told me to sign it and send it back. They said to allow a 21 day turnaround period . I got my refund today, 3 weeks after I signed the form.

  20. Natasha Sewpersad

    Terrible service. I have paid for the licence and now need to upload further documents. The website does not allow new documents to be uploaded. There is no reply when contacting help desk. I now have no idea how to get my licence delivered even though I have paid / Frustrated +++

    1. Lalitha Naidoo

      I had a similar experience .I paid and cannot upload new docs and have had no feedback since.

  21. Tinus de Lange

    Absolutely horrible service. Applied on the 26th of February for the renewal, have sent 21 emails to date, every time get a new ticket number with reference that I will be contacted shortly, it is now 9 days later, and still absolutely no response. The money was debited from my account, the tracking details were last updated 7 days ago, with the only response “out of office”
    Spare yourself the trouble and don’t make is of this pathetic service.

  22. Theuns van Dyk

    Paid in full for my renewal on the 3rd of Feb and I am still waiting after numerous queries logged. Now I see they have a new quote and want another R240? This after no feedback. This site is a scam.I went into the post office for assistance and nobody even had training or know what site I am referring to. Does anyone even look at all these complaints? Can someone please advise if there is a number to dial so we can talk to someone for help on this horrible site

  23. Mark Oosthuizen

    I paid in full on the 4th February already and logged numerous complaints through the system with ZERO feedback. My next step is log a theft charge at SAPS.

  24. Mpho

    Do not waste your time and money trying to use their online service. Go straight to their building. I’ve made an application and paid on the 10th of Feb, even today I did not receive my licence disc. They said it takes up to 3 days, it’s been 14 days now.

  25. Rita

    application and payment done on the 8th of Feb, it is now the 22nd and still not resolved. Took them a week to advise documents were not clear enough, uploaded new docs, now says requote done, what does that even mean?! No response from queries sent on their site and no-one answers the phone, do not use this service!

    1. Lindsay Potgieter

      I also paid and was later rejected due to ID not certified. I emailed certified copy to them as I could not upload. I have sent many queries and complaints and also get a ticket no, but nothing after that. Have been waiting since end of July.

  26. Dinesh Pillai

    Absolutely terrible service. Waited over a week after providing all documents and payment just for the application to be declined for no valid reason. Resubmitted the same documents.
    It’s going to take several weeks back and forth with extremely delayed communication. It’s almost like they are deliberately delaying the process for you to pay penalties for the license once it expires.
    It is very sad the state of service delivery in South Africa.
    You are much better off waiting in line in person.
