EV Registration for legal road use

Hi All, from a Sunny South Africa.

Tell me, are we the only country that does not make provision for the legal registration of converted vehicles for road use. Apparently we cannot register a vehicle that has been converted from ICE to EV :confused:, the reason, the electric motor serial number does not comply with the "engine" number requirements on the system for such registration. What a load of ......:mad:

Any South Africans out there with a similar problem?, perhaps you have found a way to get an EV registered. Let's chat.

If you have some ideas please let me know as I have one and several friends have as well, but we can't use them (Legally that is :D).

Either reply on the forum, or drop me a mail at [email protected], I need to get mine (and others) on the road ASAP.

Howzit bru. Not living in SA anymore so not got an answer unfortunately but I would just not register it as electric. Keep a few bucks in the cubby to bride troublesome cops! Hope you do find a good solution though.

Are you guys on a different forum in SA then? I'm keen to meet my kin if possible! Thanks
