The City of Cape Town encourages motorists to be proactive and to check their motor vehicle discs for the expiry date in case vehicle licence renewal notices from the Road Traffic Management Corporation for November do not arrive in time. Read more below:
The City urges motorists to please check their motor vehicle licence discs to see if their licence is up for renewal.
Motorists whose licences will expire on 30 October 2018 for renewal on or before 21 November 2018 are especially encouraged to check their licence discs if they have not yet received renewal notices.
‘As we are entering our busiest time of the year, the City has decided to encourage motorists to rather check their licence discs than wait for the renewal notice. Notification informing the City that renewal notices have not been sent out by the responsible party is usually received at the last minute and this makes the timeous notification of customers a challenge. We advise that it is possible that the licence renewal process at our walk-in offices may take a few minutes longer if renewal notices are not sent,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Councillor Johan van der Merwe.
Members of the public are also able to renew their licences online by going to http://www.capetown.gov.za/City-Connect/Pay/Driving-and-vehicles/Vehicle-licences/Pay-your-vehicle-licence to register and to make their payments.
Proof of residence and a copy of the ID of the vehicle owner are required when applying for renewals. The proof of residence and a copy of the ID can be scanned in and sent as an attachment if the application is completed online. Please allow at least 14 days for online licence disc renewals, subject to the postal service being in full operation.
