Image source: capetown.travel


Western Cape's Provincial Government has announced that it would like the public’s input on it's proposal to raise fees for various car licences across the Mother City in 2020. The draft regulation outlines the fees for motorcycles, trucks, cars, trailers and caravans.


To be inline with inflation, the increase is proposed at 4.5%. The money gathered from license fees is predominantly used to maintain the province’s roads and the building of important road infrastructure. According to the Provincial Government, the fees are also divided among municipalities for their maintenance of strategic roads. The province will also use the fees to reduce maintenance backlog, which has been decreased by 16% over the past seven years.
