KOUGA – The Traffic Department at Kouga Municipality is once again offering motorists free roadworthy tests in December. This in preparation for the upcoming holidays.
“Statistics show that unroadworthy vehicles are often to blame for accidents,” said Kouga Executive Mayor, Hattingh Bornman. “The initiative aims to prevent such incidents and ensure the safe arrival of everyone at their holiday destinations.”
The roadworthy tests In December will be conducted at the Humansdorp Vehicle Testing Station. So, this will take place during office hours from 04 December 2023 to 14 December 2023.
“Motorists will not be prosecuted if any defects are found. Thus they will simply receive a list of any possible defects. These can be sorted out before they embark on their journey,” Bornman said.
He reminded vehicle owners that the free roadworthy test is not applicable to vehicles needing roadworthy tests for registration and licensing purposes.
