The Western Cape Provincial Government has gazetted motor vehicle licence (MVL) fee increases for 2019.
The draft regulation is open for public comment until 8 February 2019.
“We have continued to publish these draft regulations for comment to allow the more than 2 million vehicle owners in the Western Cape the opportunity to submit their comments.
“This year, the proposed fee increases amount to an average 3% for the Western Cape, a figure well below inflation,” it said.
The Western Cape said that it relies on vehicle licence fees to:
- Build, upgrade and maintain the provincially-owned road network.
- Assist municipalities to fund the maintenance of their more strategic roads.
- Continue to reduce the maintenance backlog, which has been decreased by over 16% over the last 7 years.
“These fees, along with budgetary allocations, help keep the province’s roads in a good condition and during the 2017/18 financial year 94,8% of vehicle kilometres travelled on surfaced roads were travelled on roads in fair or very good condition,” it said.
