The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has introduced a high security and digitised trade licensing system.
A statement issued by DVLA said the initiative is aimed at improving efficiency and security and also improve revenue generation at the ports on imported vehicles.
The DVLA is working within its mandate to contribute to the overall government’s agenda of digitising the economy whilst significantly enhancing the ease of doing business in the country.
The statement said notwithstanding the increased security of the system and process improvements, the cost of acquiring a DP License remains unchanged at 154 cedis.
It said the upgrade of the DP License from the current insecure metal plate to a secure electronic DP STICKER is also to enable DVLA to introduce cutting edge technology to the management of the DP License.
The statement said the upgrade will ensure that those intending to fake the DP License are deterred.
It said the digitization is part of the DVLA’s long-term plan to secure the entire vehicle registration regime in the country and ensure that it meets acceptable standards.
