COMMISSIONER OF OATHS AT CAA ?

Unread post by Conquest » Thu Nov 15, 2018 8:26 am

Good day,

Can someone please advise me why there is no Commissioner of Oaths at the CAA?

The other day I went in to do my licence renewal and was told to have copies of the logbook certified as true and correct.

I asked if there is anyone there that can do this. The answer was ...NO.

So know I had to go and look for a SAPS station to do this for me and then go back to the CAA and hand in the certified docs.

A bit of a run around if you ask me..

Won't it just make sense if they had somebody right there to do this???

Theoretically, they shouldn't. For the same reason that when an attorney has a client swear to an affidavit for filing in court proceedings, they always take the client to an independent attorney (not even in the same firm) for commissioning.

CAA might have done in the past but they really shouldn't.

Jack, good afternoon and thanks for reply...does make sense in a way.

Maybe an independent Commissioner of Oaths can set up a little kiosk outside the gate and do a roaring trade.. :)

Neat idea - only one problem is that a C of O is not allowed to charge a fee for certifiying docs ...

Certifying copies and commissioning affidavits are two very separate things.

Same reason there are no pens at vehicle licensing departments.
