Firearm Licence Renewal
We can assist to renew your firearm licence
We offer this service countrywide
Every so often, firearm licences need to be renewed. This can seem like a daunting task, attempted reluctantly, or left to the last minute by many firearm owners.
The truth is that it needn’t be! We can handle this step for you, making the renewal of your licence a hassle-free process.
The firearms control Act states that you need to apply for the renewal of your licence at least 90 days before the expiry date. If you are unsure of your expiry dates, please stop what you are doing, check your licence cards and make a memo on your calendar for 120 days before the date of expiry.
If you were issued “white cards” under the Firearms Control Act, your date of issue and expiry can be found on the front of your card underneath your name and section of licence, eg 2020-03-06 – 2025-03-05.
Please see the period of validity for the most common licence types below:• Self-defence – Section 13 – 5 years
- Occasional hunting – Section 15 – 10 years
- Occasional sport shooting – Section 15 – 10 years
- Dedicated hunting – Section 16 – 10 years
- Dedicated sport shooting – Section 16 – 10 years
- Licence for business purpose – Section 20 – 5 years

If you would like to make sure of our service, the process is simple!
1. Complete and return your mandate form.
Once you have requested our service via one of our many channels of communication, we will promptly send you the correct mandate form. The purpose of this form is to collect the information necessary to compile your bulletproof application pack. Once you have completed the form, you can send it back to us via email, along with a few attachments.
2. Allow us 10 days to work our magic.
We are extremely proud of our level of craftsmanship, as such, we ask that you give us 10 working days to professionally build and compile your application pack. We go through great lengths to ensure each application pack is worthy of our legendary money-back guarantee.
Once your application pack has been completed to a standard that we are happy with and that you deserve, we will either notify you that your package is ready for collection at our shop, or we will have your pack couriered to your doorstep, anywhere in South Africa!
3. Hand in your bulletproof application pack to your nearest DFO
Once you have received your application pack, please follow the simple instructions on the front. These will usually be:
– Sign motivation
– Add 2 x colour ID photos
– Pay SAPS R77 in cash
As well as any customer-specific notes.
You will then submit your application pack to your nearest police station for processing.
SAPS currently have 120 mandated days in which to finalize an application. The compound effects of the pandemic as well as the firearm amnesty of 2020/2021 have most certainly had an impact on the timeframe of licences. We are however happy to report a marked decrease in the turnaround time.
Our fee for this professional service is:
R1350 – Renewal of a firearm licence.
R650 – Renewal of a competency certificate.
