The Vehicle Testing Station is again offering a FREE 10 Point Check for your vehicle on the 3rd, 4th and 5th January 2022 (08h30 -15h30). The George Municipal Vehicle Testing Station offered the free service on the 13th, 14th and 15th December and checked 8 vehicles before they departed on long trips. Bring your vehicle to our VTS on the corner of Hibernia Street on the dates listed above and please note the policy will be first come first served.

The 10 Point inspection includes:

George falls within the Garden Route District Municipality, the third-largest district economy in the Western Cape, after the City of Cape Town and the Cape Winelands District. The Eden District is also geographically the third-largest district within the Western Cape Province. This district is informally known as the Garden Route, with George, its hub, nestled among the slopes of the majestic Outeniqua Mountains and flanked by the Indian Ocean. Because of the proximity to the ocean, the area enjoys a pleasant, temperate climate. George also enjoys the strategic advantage of being situated on the major transport routes between Cape Town in the south and Port Elizabeth in the east. This creates investment opportunities, particularly with regard to manufacturing, logistics and warehousing. Senior Communications Officer Athane Scholtz Communications Manager: Chantel Edwards-Klose
