Revocation of enforcement order

Due to the presumption of service in Section 30(2) of the AARTO Act, it sometimes happens that an enforcement order is issued while the alleged infringer is oblivious to the fact that an infringement notice and courtesy letter has been generated and posted to him, her or it.

Where this happens, an alleged infringer may apply to have the enforcement order revoked. This must be done using an AARTO 14 application for revocation of enforcement order form, which is available at the aarto.gov.za website.

Sometimes such applications are successful, sometimes not and there is not way of telling what the prospects for success are. If you are not in a hurry to renew a driving licence, professional driving permit or vehicle licence disc, it may be worthwhile trying to have the enforcement order revoked.

If you are in a hurry, regrettably, this option may prove to be cumbersome and time-consuming, with no assured prospect for success.
