Travelling to Kumasi or Takoradi for the registration of vehicles and issuance of Grades D and F licenses will soon be a thing of the past to transport owners and operators in the Western North Region.

It will also avoid the middlemen who shuttle between Takoradi and Kumasi to issue fake licenses to ignorant drivers.

The Western Regional Manager of the Driver and Vehicle  Licensing Authority (DVLA), Robert  Williams, who made this known in an interview with GBC’s Radio Ghana at Sefwi Wiawso, said all the necessary arrangements have been made and waiting for approval from the headquarters.

According to him, Goaso and Asankragua are among the new areas sited as branch offices for DVLA.

This, Mr Williams noted, will make drivers from the nine districts and municipalities in the Western North Region have direct access to the registration of their vehicles without ‘goro’ boys.

On the use of tricycles also known as ‘Pragia’, Mr. Williams said it is registered to be used as private vehicles and not for commercial purposes. He pointed out that some ‘Pragia’ riders are below 18 years and lack experience while those above also ride without licence. He announced plans to team up with the police to arrest those engaged in that act to serve as a deterrent to others.
