The DVLA offices in Bewkai and Mampong in the Ashanti region, Obuasi, Techiman, Wenchi, Nkwakwa, Somanya, Denu and Tarkwa have been mandated to register all vehicles that come to their premises.
Francis Asamoah Tuffuor, the Public Relations Officer of the Authority told Joy News, the measure is to curb a situation where long queues characterise the registration of new vehicles at the turn of every new year.
He said this year, they have opened a lot more offices across the country to take care of registering new vehicles.
“In Accra, those around Pokuase and its environs can also go to Amasaman instead of driving to our 37 office and queue,” he said.
The Authority encourages customers to visit these offices closer to them to have their vehicles registered with their prefered prefixes.
The introduction of the new prefixes is in pursuant to Regulation 10 of the Road and Traffic Regulation 2012, LI, 2180.
