City of Cape Town to get new “CAA” licence marks as “CA” registrations run out
Statement by Donald Grant, Minister of Transport and Public Works
On Friday, 1 December 2017, I published in the Provincial Government Gazette (7850) a notice calling for public comments on the allocation of the “CAA” licence mark to the registering authorities of the City of Cape Town where the known “CA” licence mark currently applies.
Regulation 27(4) of the National Road Traffic Regulations, 2000, promulgated in terms of the National Road Traffic Act (93 of 1996), determines that the MEC may, by way of notice in the Provincial Gazette, allocate a new licence mark to any registering authority or establish a new licence number system for the province concerned.
This move is a pre-emptive one, driven by the rate at which the current “CA” licence numbers are fast depleting. Similar to the situation a few years ago in Gauteng, a new licence mark will soon be necessary for all new registrations at the registration authorities of the City of Cape Town.
My department is working together with the City of Cape Town to ensure that the transition is as smooth as possible, and that vehicle owners are not adversely affected by this necessary change.
