What is the Money-Back Guaranty

Your licence or your money back! Simple as that! At claytrainingacademy.co.za we do things slightly differently. We aim to deliver certainty in these uncertain times. We are proud to be one of the only companies in South Africa that offer a money back guarantee on our application packs. Our sole mission is to make the firearm licensing experience as simple and straight forward for our loyal clients. Our application packs are of such high quality that we are happy to cover the financial risk associated with a firearm licence refusal. At the end of the day, you pay for results! In the event of your application being refused, we will appeal your refusal on your behalf, free of charge. If we are unsuccessful, we offer you the option of a full refund, or the assistance to continue fighting for your licence, free of charge. The only applications which are unfortunately not covered by our guarantee are those that pertain to the Firearms Amnesty of 2020/2021

Can I get a gun in South Africa?

Yes! It is much easier than you may think. Requirements: Be over the age of 21 or hold dedicated status, Have a criminal record free from violent crime,  Be an SA citizen or hold a permanent residence status.

How do I get a gun licence?

 We specialize in the entire firearm licensing process,
holding your hand every step of the way.

Below is a brief overview of the simple process.

Step 1: – Proficiency

 You will need to do your proficiency training in order to apply for your competency certificate at SAPS.
You will need to do the legal test – R500
Each additional module costs R1350  (HANDGUN,SHOTGUN, RIFLE, SELF-LOADING RIFLE)
We also have a combination manual available for R5500 (Legal, Handgun, Rifle, Shotgun, Semi-auto)
Benefits of doing the combination module include: Saving Money, Saving time, less writing and admin, being capable of handling multiple weapon platforms.
So in total to do your handgun and legal will cost R1850, all inclusive (workbooks, Open book tests, closed book tests, firearm rental, range fees and ammo).
You can purchase your books from us at any time, complete the open book tests at home in your own time, then make a date to come do the closed book tests

(very simple – no need to stress about them 😊) and the shoot. Your results will then be uploaded onto the PFTC and within approximately a week, you will get your certificate and statement of results.

Step 2: – Competency

Once you have your certificate and statement of results, you use these to apply at SAPS for your competency certificate. We can compile your entire competency
application pack. All you need to do is provide us with some info and collect an envelope containing your entire application pack. Our fee for this service is R550.

Step 3: – Licensing

As soon as you have received your competency certificate you may apply for your firearm license at SAPS. In addition to selling firearms, we are able to compile your
entire firearm application pack. Just like the competency application, all you will need to do is provide us with some basic info and collect your completed application from us. Our fee for this service is R1150

You only pay for the service we are rendering at any given time, so you do not need to pay for the whole course up front.

What is the difference between proficiency and competency?

Proficiency is issued by the training academy where you did your closed book, open book and practical test. Competency is issued to you by the South African Police Service. In order to be able to apply for competency, you must first be issued with a proficiency certificate.

Why are your application packs so expensive?

Application packs are essentially legal documents. Many law firms offer similar services and charge upwards of R7000! There is a lot of specialized work that goes into your application pack. There is also a lot of time and money riding on your application being approved by SAPS, who are combing your applications looking for reasons to refuse your licence. We are extremely passionate and confident in our work. That is why we are happy to back our work up with our legendary money back guarantee!
