Have your say about licence hikes

The Western Cape Provincial Gazette has published the draft regulation pertaining to motor vehicle licence (MVL) fee increases in the province. The draft regulation is still open for public comment until Friday 8 February.

The provincial government has continued to publish these draft regulations for comment to give the more than 2 million vehicle owners of the Western Cape the a chance to submit their comments. This year, proposed fee increases amount to an average 3% for the Western Cape, a figure well below inflation.

The Western Cape Provincial Government 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 decreased by more than 16% over the last seven years.

These fees, along with budgetary allocations, help keep the province’s roads in 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 conditions. A total of 7 019 km of provincial roads are in a fair to very good condition.

National Treasury Regulation 7.3.1 requires that all fees that are not or cannot be fixed by any law, and which relate to revenue accruing to the revenue fund, must be reviewed annually and submitted to the Cabinet via the Provincial Treasury.

The draft regulation has been published in the Western Cape Provincial Gazette Extraordinary 8 027 dated 9 January 2019 for public comment.

Any person or organisation wishing to comment on the draft regulations is requested to lodge such comments on or before Friday 8 February.
