What is a traffic register?
The South African licencing system (enatis) does not recognize passport numbers, only identity numbers.
Unfortunately, foreign identity numbers, in most cases, are not recognized. Your traffic register is your identity on the enatis system.
Why do I need a traffic register? You need a traffic register in order to:
Write your learner's licence test
Conduct a driving test
Register and licence a vehicle in South Africa should you wish to purchase a vehicle
What is required to apply for a traffic register?
2 ID colour passport photos
Proof of address in South Africa

A letter from the Department of Home Affairs - which can be obtained by your immigration officer confirming that your visa is valid
Your original passport - which is required on the day of submission and will be returned to you shortly after submission
The ABR form - which needs to be signed by the applicant
How long does the process take?
The application process takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks.
Am I required to appear in person?
No, not for the submission process but you are required to collect the traffic register in person.
