As of February 2018, an amount of R72 is going to be added to the renewal fees for all motor vehicle licenses.
Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) spokesperson Simon Zwane explains the hike in the vehicle licence renewal handling fee from R42 to R72 - an increase of R30.
He says the fee was first introduced in 2007 and it was agreed that it will go up by R6 every year, but only went up in 2009 from R30 to R36.
However, he explains, the fee did not increase from 2009 until a R6 fee additional fee was added in 2016 making it R42.
He says now the cost of running the eNaTIS system has gone up, as well as personnel costs, which justifies the hike in fees.
If you look at it now, it would've been over R100 but consideration was taken to account that already people are having it hard.— Simon Zwane, RTMC spokesperson
