Steps to obtain a gun licence in South Africa

The Gun Licence Application Process

Step 1: – Proficiency

Cape Town Only

You will need to do your proficiency training in order to apply for your competency certificate at SAPS.

You will need to do the legal test – R600

Each additional module costs R1550  (HANDGUN,SHOTGUN, RIFLE, SELF-LOADING RIFLE)

We also have a combination manual available for R5500 (Legal, Handgun, Rifle, Shotgun, Semi-auto)

Benefits of doing the combination module include: Saving Money, Saving time, less writing and admin, being capable of handling multiple weapon platforms.

So in total to do your handgun and legal will cost R2150, all inclusive (workbooks, Open book tests, closed book tests, firearm rental, range fees and ammo).

You can purchase your books from us at any time, complete the open book tests at home in your own time, then make a date to come do the closed book tests
(very simple – no need to stress about them ) and the shoot. Your results will then be uploaded onto the PFTC and within approximately a week, you will get your certificate and statement of results.

Step 2: – Competency

Once you have your certificate and statement of results, you use these to apply at SAPS for your competency certificate. We can compile your entire competency
application pack. All you need to do is provide us with some info and collect an envelope containing your entire application pack. Our fee for this service is R650.

Step 3: – Licencing

As soon as you have received your competency certificate you may apply for your firearm licence at SAPS. In addition to selling firearms, we are able to compile your
entire firearm application pack. Just like the competency application, all you will need to do is provide us with some basic info and collect your completed application from us. Our fee for this service is R1350.
