Bolt Inspections

One of the services that we are offering, is to do Inspections on vehicles that have applied to work for Bolt. We do the Inspections on behalf of The Raspberry Academy. We are not affiliated with Bolt in anyway and only carry out the Inspections.

Before asking for an inspection to be done. Make sure that you have applied to Bolt already and have received an e-mail asking you to come to us for an inspection. We do not register you with Bolt. We only carry out the Inspection.

Due to the Covid-19 Lock down, We are now introducing a No Contact way to do Inspections for your safety and ours. Only from Level 4 and lower Lock down levels, can we assist. Please read and follow the full instructions. Failure to do so correctly will result in the inspection booking taking longer then is required. 

You are required to have the following documents

  • Certificate Of Registration (COR)
  • Double Disk – Roadworthy (The license and roadworhty disk, not the roadworhty paper!)
  • Double Disk – Operator Card
  • Passenger Liability Insurance (PLI) disk, or a summary page (needs to be one page) – Only if you have your own. Cover must be R5 million or more.
  • Vehicle Owners Drivers License. (Please use original. Front only)
