Cape Town Car License FeesThe Western Cape Provincial Government has announced new increased license fees for the year 2020.

The proposed fees gazetted this week target cars, motorcycles, trucks, trailers and caravans. The average increase is 4.5%, which the provincial government says is in line with the inflation.

These license fees, according to the government, help it maintain various essential services such as building, upgrading and maintaining roads under its jurisdiction.

Any objections or comments on this proposed fee increase should be provided in writing, on or before 13 December 2019.

This is what you can expect to pay in 2020, side by side with what you are paying now.
