Can a Financed Vehicle be Exported

Financed Vehicles can only be Exported with explicit authorization by the finance house.

Finance houses will in general not give consent.

My Vehicle is paid off but the Registration Documents still shows the Finance House as The Title Holder.

The Titleholder and Owner must be the same person or institution.

You will have to register the vehicle to rectify the Registration document.

I have done a Engine Change but the old Engine Number still shows on my Registration Certificate.

You will have to do a Police Clearance to rectify the Engine no then apply for a new Registration Certificate before the Export Clearance can be done.
