Goodbye, CAA! Cape number plates are about to change again - this time ending WC
The new Cape Town vehicle number plates starting with the letters CAA are expected to run out soon.
Replacing them will be new number plates with a combination of alpha and numeric characters followed by WC at the end.
For example: ABC 123 WC
This is similar to how vehicle number plates appear in the Eastern Cape and in Gauteng.
Western Cape Transport MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela says the upcoming "WC" number plate system will allow authorities room to produce 16-million number plates.
The current CAA number plate system can only produce 99,999 plates.
Madikizela says the changes will be published in the government gazette and opened for public comment next week.
