Vehicle registration just a swipe away

2016-07-26 06:00

Card payment facilities are now available for motor vehicle registration services at its Customer Care Centre in Fish Hoek.

The extension of credit and debit card payment facilities for motor vehicle registration services at this municipal office follows a recent successful pilot roll-out of the service at the Cape Town Civic Customer Care Centre.

Over the coming month, the City will be embarking on more metro wide roll-outs of this new service.

The expansion of card payment facilities for the payment of rates and tariff accounts, building plan and land use applications as well as traffic fines will take a bit longer as system upgrades are required.

The City will accept payments of up to R5000 per transaction by credit or debit card, or any other means of payment which does not hold any cost implications for the client. This amount covers most transactions by their clients, be it for motor vehicle licences, rates and services bills, or other sundry payments.

The City will, however, reclaim the relevant banking fee for any payment over R5000.

Clients are encouraged to make electronic payments for large transactions with the City, as this will result in minimal bank reclaims of banking charges. Electronic (EFT) payments carry the lowest bank charges. Currently, more than 60% of payments to the City are via EFT payments.

“We are forging ahead with the enhancement of services at our municipal centres and we are committed to finding ways of constantly improving the level of convenience for our customers,” says deputy mayor Ian Neilson.
