DEKRADots or Microdots are microscopic dots laser etched onto a 10mm dot and applied to eight key areas of the vehicle giving it a unique DNA. This in return makes it impossible for anyone to clone your vehicle and it's parts.

The microdots uniquely identifies you as the rightful owner.

Your name and contact details, vehicle vin and registration number, coupled with your personalised vehicle DNA are stored on our national database.

DEKRA is an accredited installer of microdots and our superior system does not compromise on quality. The DEKRADot is extremely affordable, requires no contract and takes 15 minutes to applicate.

Often vehicles are stolen merely for the spare parts that can be removed,

but this requires a 'market' to dispose of them. As from 1 September 2012, all vehicles registered for the first time are required by law to be fitted with microdots. This includes trailers, caravans and motorcycles.

By fitting the DEKRADot, it will drastically reduce the chance of you or your loved ones being the victim of another hijacking. This also prevents potential thieves from stealing the vehicle as the vehicle and its parts have been contaminated, thus making the vehicle undesirable.

It also makes the job of identifying the rightful owner, even if the engine/chassis number has been defaced, easy for the SAPS. Both the law enforcement and insurance companies can identify your vehicle at the push of a button.
