On 6 October 2017, Transport Minister, Joe Maswanganyi increased the vehicle licensing transaction fee payable to the RTMC by 71.43%, with effect from 1 February 2018.
This increases the transaction fee from R42.00 to R72.00 and applies to all vehicle licensing transactions, regardless of the actual licensing fee applicable to the vehicle itself.
What can motorists do about this?
Unilateral powers are bestowed upon the Minister of Transport, not just by the RTMC Act and its Regulations, but by all manner of road traffic law in South Africa. This has been interpreted to mean that the Minister of Transport may do as he or she wishes, but history has proven that any administrative decisions taken by official must be rational and may not be taken on an arbitrary basis. Motorists can and should demand that responsible decisions are taken and are based on sound reasoning.
