Vehicles queue up to register for 2013 plates

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) in Kumasi is expecting the upsurge in the number of vehicle registration to continue in 2013.

The sector registered over 25,000 vehicles last year, which is one of the highest records in recent years.

Long queues have already been forming at the offices of the DVLA from Wednesday as hundreds of vehicle owners and drivers rush to register for new plates.

Officials say about 200 vehicles have so far been registered.

Some of the prospective applicants have complained that the registration processes are cumbersome and tiring.
In such circumstances, middlemen popular known as ‘goro boys’ attempt to cash in on the situation to exploit the unsuspecting public.

Ashanti Regional Deputy Licensing Officer, Joseph Clifford Obosu has however cautioning the public to be wary.

“We are doing our possible best to take care of our clients and anytime that they come they should come to the office direct and work with the officers. Somebody may heckle you on the roadside that he wants to help you and the person will tend to do fake license, registration, whatsoever”, he told Luv Biz Report.

Mr. Obosu has enjoined vehicle owners to patronize the DVLA client service directorate to seek information and clarification for all transactions.

He also added his voice to calls for the driving public to protect lives on the roads by driving with caution.
