These amendments include changes to the circumstances in which these vehicles will be allowed on the beach.

Applications for a permit will only be considered when the vehicle is being used for scientific research, tourism, to gain access to private property, for the filming of a movie or advertisements, or to take photographs.

Permits will be available at R500 for commercial fishing purposes. Access to private property and for research is free of charge.

A tourism permit will cost R10 000 for 60 months, and a permit to shoot a movie will cost R5 000 for 30 days, non-renewable.

Five types of users will not need a permit, namely in an emergency where a life, property or the environment are endangered; to launch a boat at a licensed launching slip; disabled people using an electric vehicle; government officials in the course of duty; and the National Sea Rescue Institute for either training purposes or in the public interest.
