The City of Cape Town has just been informed that motor vehicle license renewal notices for October have not been printed and posted by the Road Traffic Management Corporation. This affects motorists whose discs expired on 30 September 2018 and that must be renewed on or before 22 October 2018. Read more below:

The City urges motorists to please check their motor vehicle license discs to see if their licence is up for renewal in the absence of renewal notices being issued.

‘Although this situation is outside of our control and not of our making, we sincerely apologise for any inconvenience. We advise that it is possible that the licence renewal process at our walk-in offices may take a few minutes longer due to the renewal notices not having been sent,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Councillor Johan van der Merwe.

Members of the public are also able to renew their licenses online by going to< to register and to make their payments.

Proof of residence and a copy of the ID of the vehicle owner are required when applying for renewals. The proof of residence and the copy of ID can be scanned in and sent as an attachment if the application is completed online. Please allow at least 10 days for online license disk renewals, subject to the postal service being in full operation.
