The Western Cape Traffic Department is in the process of implementing online renewal and payment of CAW vehicle licences, but until such time the George Municipality has made temporary provision for electronic payment of vehicle licence renewals. While online renewal is recommended, you can still renew in person at the Hibernia Street office – bring your old disk, ID document and proof of residence with you.

Vehicle licences are valid for a year from the date of renewal. The owner has 21 days from the date of expiry on the disk to renew the license.
