I don't understand this as an Intra-Company Transfer Permit is already a type of temporary residence permit. Furthermore, if you change your status, your company would need to be notified. Are they happy for you to leave?

Hey - I'll let others comment about the permits - but for the car...

1 - You don't need a SA license to purchase a car ( buying cash)
2 - If you want to finance with a bank here - then YES - you will need an SA license to qualify for financing
3 - You don't even need a SA license to buy car insurance
