Motor Trade Number Applications

Description:

Manufacturers, builders and importers of vehicles, as well as motor transport contractors and motor dealers, may drive unregistered vehicles on public roads under a motor trade number.

This is only permitted in order for:

  • a motor transport contractor to deliver a motor vehicle, 
  • a motor dealer to deliver, sell, exchange or repair a motor vehicle, 
  • a manufacturer or builder to deliver or test a motor vehicle, or
  • an importer to deliver a motor vehicle.

The applicant must apply for a motor trade number and then license the motor trade number.

Instructions:

To apply for a motor trade number, you need to submit form MTN1 accompanied by:

  • the identification of the company (business registration certificate or traffic register number), 
  • the appropriate fees, and
  • a letter of appointment and the ID of the proxy and representative.

On your application, you need to indicate how many motor trade numbers are required and why they are required.

Note: Motorists must verify all personal and address particulars with any motor vehicle or driving licence transaction.  These documents can be used as proof.
