EC motor vehicle licences to increase

Eastern Cape MEC for Transport Thandiswa Marawu has announced that vehicle license fees are set to increase by approximately 8.5% as from 01 April 2014.

 The increase of licence fees is based on the average inflation of South Africa which is 5.86% and it is in line with the standardisation of Motor Licence Fees across provinces where the Eastern Cape is closing the gap to the highest charging province.

 The increase in the fees will range as follows:

 MEC Marawu also added that it will cost a person with a 1751kg vehicle approximately R1.79 per day to licence his vehicle to be used on any public road per year
