There is only one General Radio Licence. It has nothing to do with Comm or PPL.

Pretty much everything you need to know is in The Radio Handbook by Dietlind Lempp.

It is an ICASA licence not a CAA licence.

Trying to sort this myself as well. There is an online CAA exam, but I can't find a syllabus for it and was also looking for mock questions.
After this do you still need to do a practical test and any idea who in the Joburg area can help with this?

you need to write the online CAA exam, for which they don't publish a syllabus (couldn't find an official one anyway, it's not included in the most recent CPL syllabus doc).
You then need to do a practical test with someone approved for the job.
It all very much involves the CAA.

Ah ok, found it in the CATS appendix, thanks wonky.

I used the Radio handbook and Fox1 to test my knowledge for the Radio exam and passed with 92%. It is not as difficult as some want to make it. Study the book well and it is actually easy to pass.

I used foxone for PPL but they don't have a CPL question bank so it ruled them out.
