Driving licence codes

The classification, standardised throughout the whole southern African region, consists of the following groups of licences, based on the European Unified Driving Licence system.

A = Motor cycles
B = Light motor vehicles (up to 3 500 kg GVM)
C = Heavy motor vehicles
D = Combinations, including articulated vehicles.

The various codes within these groups, tabled below are taken from the Professional Driver's Digest >. The holder of a licence to drive a particular class of vehicle is not authorised to drive any other, except where other codes have been indicated in the table.
The system makes a distinction between rigid vehicles and rigid vehicles drawing trailers (above 750 kg GVM). For example, the holder of a code C1 is permitted to drive a heavy goods vehicle up to 16 000 kg GVM but needs an EC1 licence in order to pull a trailer heavier than 750 kg GVM.
