The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), has commissioned an ultra-modern office at Akatsi in the Akatsi South Municipality of the Volta region.

This forms part of the Authority’s drive to bring their services closer to the people they serve.

Commissioning the facility, the Deputy Minister of Transport, Mr. Frederick Obeng Adom, said there have been stakeholder engagements on the Road Traffic Act 2004, (ACT 683) and the Road Traffic Regulations of 2012, with a view to amending sections to ensure best road practices to promote road safety.

The Akatsi Office of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) is the latest official commissioning of a district office. The office is also the 33rd Office of the Authority across the country and the 4th in the Volta region aside Denu, Hohoe and the Ho Offices.

Prior to establishment of the Akatsi office, motorists who desired the services of the Authority had to travel long distances to either Ho, Hohoe or Denu to get access to the services. According to the Authority, the establishment of the Akatsi office is in line with the Authority’s strategic plans to expand its operations and services to the public within localities.

The Volta Regional Manager of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority, Mr. Samuel Lodonu said reforms and innovations injected and deployed into the operations of the Authority have reduced time spent by the public in accessing the services of the Authority in the region.

He appealed to the Management of the Authority to consider establishing an Office in the Oti region to reduce time and risk of travelling to Hohoe before accessing the Authority’s services.

Board Chairman of the DVLA, Frank Davies, said the establishment of new offices across the country is translating into impressive transformation in the scheme of operations of the Authority in recent times. The Chief Executive Officer of the DVLA, Mr. Kwasi Agyemang Busia said the Authority will continue to build on what has been started with the goal to achieve the establishment of an autonomous, efficient and sustainable Authority.

While commending the DVLA for good work, the Deputy Minister for Transport, Mr. Frederick Obeng Adom was not happy about the increased road carnage in the country. He recommended a national dialogue to reverse the trend.
