It kicks off on the 1st of December.

The mandatory new number plates will not depict towns and demarcations, but, instead, will end in ZN.

Spokesperson Thando Biyela says the first phase of the new system will begin on Wednesday until 28 February.

"The first phase of the new numbering system will cater to registration of new motor vehicles, reregistration of motor vehicles to new owners, stolen vehicles that are recovered and relicensed to owners’ name and government vehicles."

Biyela says they made the move after some towns ran out of numbers.

"The second phase will commence on the first of March 2024, catering for all vehicle owners to migrate from the current system to the new one throughout the 24-month implementation period. 

"Motorists will be given 21 months, starting from 1 March 2024, to voluntarily migrate to the new system. Thereafter it will be mandatory."
