Overstrand Municipality encourages residents to please consider online renewal of vehicle licences whenever possible.

Ensure that you pay the correct amount into the Overstrand Municipality primary bank account and use the relevant car registration number as a reference. Transactions cannot be processed if the amount due and the reference number are incorrect.

Members of the public can ascertain the correct amount due by phoning Traffic Services on 028 313 8175/8031/8166 (Hermanus Traffic), 028 384 8339 (Gansbaai Traffic) or 028 271 8400 (Kleinmond Traffic) before making an EFT payment. 

Due to high call volumes to the vehicle licensing office requesting the correct amount due, not all calls are being attended to. As an alternative, your request can be emailed to any of the following: jwilliams@overstrand.gov.za; pafrica@overstrand.gov.za; zbotma@overstrand.gov.za or iswartz@overstrand.gov.za. Unfortunately you will not receive an answer immediately but enquiries will be addressed within two to three working days. Please provide your vehicle registration number and ID number and contact details.
