Number Plates Run Out

The Central Vehicle Registry (CVR) has run out of vehicle registration plates, with a few available at post offices outside Harare.

This means those who used Harare addresses when they purchased their vehicles cannot access the remaining plates. When contacted for a comment by The Herald, Vehicle Inspection Department (VID) director Mr Johannes Pedzapasi confirmed the shortage, but refused to comment further, saying Government would issue a statement at the appropriate time. The Herald could not get a comment from Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Joel Biggie Matiza and his deputy, Advocate Fortune Chasi.

  1. Isn’t it time the Government came clean regarding the change of number plates with change of ownership. It is a money-making racket. For decades we manged to buy and sell cars without having to endure the bureaucracy and cost of changing number plates. Revert to the old system and reserve the few number plates for new cars. Time for common sense to take over.
