The Transport Minister blade Nzimande announced that the National licensing transaction fees will increase from R72 to R82 for all motorists.
The March 8 Government Gazette indicates the 14 percent increase will be paid to the Road Traffic Management Corporation (RTMC).
In 2018 there was a R30 increase to the transaction fees meaning that over the past two years motorists have had an increase of R40.
According to reports, the licensing centres need to pay a transaction fee for the processing of every motorist. While the fee appears separate on the licence renewal, it is added to the renewal costs.
It is not clear if the amount differs from province to province as the Limpopo Department of Transport have not made this clear.
