Information which might help
Dealers General License

The Kenya Revenue Authority wishes to notify all motor vehicle dealers, manufacturers and repairers that pursuant to the Traffic Act Cap 403 Section 23(1) Laws of Kenya, they must obtain a valid Dealers General Licence upon application and payment of the prescribed fees.

The commissioner may issue the number of dealers licenses required and with each license, shall issue two identification plates.

All persons concerned should therefore obtain the required licence with immediate effect. Failure to comply with the notice will lead to enforcement action.

Traffic Act Chapter 403

Kenya Revenue Authority

Every dealers general licence shall cease to be valid if the dealer ceases to carry on business in the district for which it is issued.

When a Dealers General Licence expires or is cancelled or otherwise ceases to be valid under the provisions of the Act, the holder of the licence shall deliver to the Registrar the identification plate which were issued to such holder with such licence, unless a renewal licence is issued for the same plates.

Provided that upon the expiry of the licence the holder may retain the identification plates issued with the licence if he applies for and is issued with a new licence in respect of the same identification plates and the new licence would during the period of its validity authorize the use of such identification plates in the same manner as the expired licence.
