Transport minister, Fikile Mbalula published the government’s updated national license transaction fees for 2021 for public comment.
In a government gazette published on Friday (3 September), Mbalula said that the new license transaction fee will cost R72.
In terms of the Road Traffic Management Corporation Act, local registering authorities (licensing centres) must pay the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC) a transaction fee for each motorist it processes. This is subsequently passed on to the applicant and added to the annual license fees.
This fee is separate from the actual license fee, with the R72 effectively added to the renewal costs for all motor vehicle licenses across the country, this appears to be the first time the fee has decreased since being introduced in 2019.
