Use City’s online booking system ahead of busy festive season<div>The City’s Customer Offices, including the motor vehicle registration and licensing centre, will most likely be busier than usual during November and December months due to an increase in transactions ahead of the festive season. </div><div><br></div><div>‘We also remind residents that Customer Offices, which provide cash receiving, account enquiries, motor vehicle registration and licensing, as well as housing rental offices will be closed on certain days over the festive season. It is therefore important for residents to make their plans to visit an office ahead of time and as early as possible, and we urge residents to make use of our new online booking system to get ahead of the queue.</div><div><br></div><div>‘In September, the City launched an online booking system for motor vehicle licensing and registration, which allows residents to book an appointment so that they do not have to stand in a queue. In addition to motor vehicle licensing and registration, the system allows residents to book an appointment to pay their municipal accounts. Thus far, the new system has assisted more than 1000 residents since it launched and we encourage residents to make use of it to avoid long queues over the next two months.</div><div> </div><div>‘For residents who do not want to go into a physical customer office at all, our services are also available online through the e-Services portal. Residents are encouraged to register on the City website to make use of the e-Services options. </div><div><br></div><div>‘The City remains committed to providing reliable and top quality service to residents and we strive to always find new ways to improve our service offering to residents across the city,’ said the City’s Mayoral Committee Member for Finance, Siseko Mbandezi. </div><div><br></div><div>Residents may access the online booking system at to book appointments at the following City Payment Centres and Motor Vehicle Registration and Licensing facilities:</div><div><br></div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Bellville </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Cape Town Civic Centre </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Goodwood</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Kuils River </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Lansdowne Corner</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Liberty Promenade Mall </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Milnerton </div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Parow</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Pinelands</div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Table Bay Mall</div><div><br></div><div><br></div><div><strong>Follow five easy steps and make your booking:</strong></div><div><br></div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Visit the City’s website: or</div><div><br></div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Select your Customer Office</div><div><br></div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Select a date and time for your booking</div><div><br></div><div>•<span style="white-space:pre;"> </span>Enter your contact details </div><div> </div><div>Customers will receive an SMS and email confirmation with their appointment reference, which will be required and checked on the day of the appointment. </div><div><br></div><div>See this short YouTube video: <a href=""></a> <br></div><div><br></div><div><br></div><div><strong>Checking in</strong></div><div><br></div><div>Once the resident arrives at the Walk-in Centre where the booking has been made, the booking reference number must be inserted on the touch screen terminal to receive their Queue Management System (QMS) ticket.
