    Can and how does an international obtain a prdp??

    I am an Australian citizen trying to become a nature guide here in South Africa. Guides drive paying guests around private reserves and may obtain monetry gain from it(tips). Do nature guides then require a prdp and how would I go about getting a prdp if I am an Aus citizen??

    Please, if anyone could advise, it would be much appreciated!

    The foremen in our company sometimes transports some of our employees on their bakkies. Do they need a PrDP to do so?
    Does it depend on how many they transport? Does this also count as “for gain” even though they do not pay, because it is company transport?

    Please help?

    Dear Sir

    I need to send a driver for a PDP in Gauteng. I need to know the total costs.

    (You will have to take you ID, 4 photos and complete form PD1 at the DLTC. Once you have paid the application fee you will be issued with a form MC that has to be completed by a medical practitioner. You will also be referred to the nearest SAPS station for a criminal record check.)

    Please also help me with the accronyms above. (DLTC and MC)

    Your help is much appreciated.

    Kind Regards

    I need to obtain my PdP, the problem is that before my priorities were in a row, I had managed to get myself into trouble with the law, and subsequently have a reckless endangerment record because of speeding, this was about two years ago, and the record is still there. I bought a motorcycle that I thought would be fun, but it’s been more hassle than anything else and way too fast. So my company has told me that I HAVE to get a PdP and that my job is on the line according to their policies, I understand that because I have to be able to drive out van to do my job .. WHAT CAN I DO, someone suggested a letter from my company to the chief licensing officer motivating why I should get my PdP.

    How much would it cost to renew a pdp in the Western Cape?

    What must a driver do. When he must offloading in a urban place where there are no offloading zones and even the place where he is suppose to offload cannot except the hole 22m long truck.
    The driver must offhook outside and take the 6m empty it, then the 12m. When every thing is finish and he wanted to go. Then a traffic officer came and give him a fine. PARK ON THE SIDEWALK / Or PARK ON THE YELLOW LINE. And there are no sidewalks or yellow line in Manchester road Pinetown.

    TRucks are 22meters long,it takes two lane to turn,and carry 56 tons. And the traffic officers see us as a soft target.Because truck drivers are all over the country.And it is very difficult for them to pay such fines in the necesary provinces.
