Here are the new car license fees for Gauteng, the Western Cape and KZN in 2019

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.

You can find the list of the most important proposed fees detailed below.

In addition to car licence fees, motorcycle, trailer and caravan licence fees are also included.
