25% Discount For Revenue License

Recommended Posts

This would work nicely for me as my jeep's RL expires on the 21st; but then i saw the fine print.. the fee must be under Rs.6000, it was 8000 the last time i registered it. And another thing is that mine's pretty old hence doesn't require the Emissions Test, I wonder if the system can handle such exceptions.

OK, correction: the Rs.8000 for me was with an unpaid year n fine. Anyway, I just went and got the fitness report (as its a 28 sri registration) and went to their office in Dehiwala. I handed the 'book' and fitness test, and the counter lady asked for the regular docs, but i said they were renewed a while back hence should be in the system. No emissions test needed as the YOM is 1969. I doubt that she verified the docs on the system (as she did everything it pretty fast). In and out in under 10 minutes.

I had the same problem too. Then I checked for another vehicle and checked again for the first and I got the results. It might have been something to do with the formatting of the text you entered.

Davy, is it confirmed that you can renew an expired RL online? I thought you can't, maybe there is certain period within which you can. Any detail would be helpful.

I renewed an expired license online last month

No issue at all - they charge the usual penalty & a nominal service fee, but well worth it for the convenience IMO

They let you print a temporary copy with the details necessary until they send the original via registered post

Got two done in the last two months - works like clock work :)

Unfortunately all mine are above 6000. And they will renew extremely old and expired licences as well - the fine given on the site is slightly less than what govt. gazette suggests, but who's complaining?

Slightly OT;

Does anyone know the basis for determining a price of a revenue license?

It's based on the class and weight of the vehicle machan (and any other delay fee + stamp duty applicable). Check out the PDF document below for a detailed breakdown of the Revenue Licence charges (refer page 8 onwards).

Total cost for me was 2460/- with 200 rupee late charge. With discount 1850// so that's a screaming good deal!

Sorry for reviving old thread. I'm going to renew my revenue license for the first time after buying a used car. Can I do the online stuff and get the revenue license in my name or is there any other paper work involved?

Has the car now transferred to your name? if so the license will come under your name.

You can do it once the ownership is transferred to you name and no more paper work. You need to verify the validity of your insurance and Eco certificate if applicable. They will post the revenue license under registered post to the address in the book. In fact I have a problem now with this because I no longer live at the address given in the book and they do not have an option to update/amend the postal address AFAIK.

They actually do have a process Rumesh. My CS3 was registered under my mother's name and she got it changed to our new address after we moved. This was done a couple of years back, so I don't remember the exact process. I will ask her and get back to you on this.

I asked my mother and she barely remembers the process, but she said that there was a "Change of Particulars" form that can be obtained from DMT. It has to be handed over with the original registration document and the current owner's NIC copy. I'm not 100% sure if that is all that's needed.

EDIT: Looks like it's form CMT 72. Got it from here.

this is what it says in the DMT web sites. not sure whether it is up-to date. found here . link might not work in the future as does not look like a permalink. hence copied the content below

  1. CMT 72 application
  2. Registration certificate of the vehicle
  3. Vehicle Identity Card (applicable only for vehicles with new numbers starting with English letters.)
