Ve­hi­cle li­cence amnesty opens


Ve­hi­cle own­ers with out­stand­ing li­cence penal­ties and ar­rears have un­til New Year’s Eve to ap­ply for amnesty, the East­ern Cape De­part­ment of Trans­port an­nounced this week.

Trans­port, Safety and Li­ai­son MEC Weziwe Tikana said the amnesty pe­riod is 1 Oc­to­ber to 31 De­cem­ber 2018 and only ap­pli­cants who have not paid their li­cence fees from 1 Jan­uary 2005 to 31 March 2017 would be con­sid­ered for a dis­count.

For lo­cal ve­hi­cle own­ers, the Makana Traf­fic De­part­ment will re­ceive amnesty ap­pli­ca­tions and for­ward them to the Head Of­fice, who will send the re­sponse back to Makana. “Only ve­hi­cles li­censed in the East­ern Cape will be con­sid­ered, sub­ject to mo­ti­va­tion and sworn state­ment,” Tikana said and only the owner or ti­tle holder may make the ap­pli­ca­tion.

To ap­ply take with you an af­fi­davit, a cer­ti­fied copy of your ID and proof of ad­dress not older than three months.
