Cape Town - Earlier in December, Wheels24 reported that motorists in the Cape Town could use the new licence plate designation 'CAA' as available CA registrations are 'fast depleting'.

Western Cape MEC of Transport and Public Works, Donald Grant said: "On December 1 2017, I published in the Provincial Government Gazette (7850 – attached) a notice calling for public comments on the allocation of the 'CAA' licence mark to the registering authorities of the City of Cape Town where the known 'CA' licence mark currently applies."

Why the change?

Grant said: "This move is a pre-emptive one, driven by the rate at which the current 'CA' licence numbers are fast depleting. Similar to the situation a few years ago in Gauteng, a new licence mark will soon be necessary for all new registrations at the registration authorities of the City of Cape Town."
