We have always been able to easily distinguish Cape Town number plates but that is due to change in the near future. It’s the finish of a period for this present group of Cape Town number plates. Drivers are in for a major change. Cape Town vehicle number plates beginning with CAA will be discontinued and will be supplanted with a new numerical code finishing off with WC.
As indicated by Western Cape Transport MEC Bonginkosi Madikizela, the old number plates will be supplanted with a mix of alpha and numeric characters pursued by WC toward the end, like Eastern Cape and Gauteng number plates.
Pretty much every conceivable variety of the “CA” plates have been taken via vehicle proprietors over the region. The neighborhood code of the Mother City has been depleted, implying that another variety must be acquainted so individuals can proceed with register new vehicles.
It’s a demonstration of exactly what number of vehicles are out and about in Cape Town. The city is regularly recognized as South Africa’s generally clogged and specialized issues, for example, these fill in as an ideal representation.
These new number plates are being made to take into account a much bigger revenue be created. The current CAA plates just enable 99,999 plates to be created, though the WC framework is relied upon to deliver 16-million number plates.
The “CAA” are also relatively new, they were only introduced in May this year. Motorists with the “CAA” and “CA” number plates will be required to trade in their old plates for the new ones.
