The Gauteng, KZN and Western Cape provincial governments have gazetted their motor vehicle licence (MVL) fee increases for 2019.
These fee increases officially came into effect on 1 April 2019 and are traditionally a tax used by the government to improve road conditions.
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.
