As we usher into a new year, the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has launched a new Vehicle Registration System to completely digitise and automate the vehicle registration process, which hitherto operated manually with significant challenges.
This was disclosed in a statement signed by the Head of Public Relations of the Authority, Mr. Francis Asamoah Tuffour to media houses.
According to him, the new Vehicle Registration System is expected to streamline the registration process, prevent leakages, and eliminate potential duplications.
The System he noted has been in a pilot phase for several months in selected vehicle registration centres.
These new license plate prefixes are ‘AK’ for Bekwai-Ashanti, ‘AP’ for Mampong-Ashanti, ‘AC’ for Obuasi, and ‘BT’ for Techiman.
Meanwhile,Mr. Tuffour indicated that, the Authority has also introduced new prefixes for the registration of vehicles in pursuance of Regulation 10, of the Road Traffic Regulation 2012, LI, 2180.
The rest are ‘BW’ for Wenchi, ‘EN’ for Nkawkaw, ‘ES’ for Somanya, ‘VD’ for Denu and ‘WT’ for Tarkwa.
The statement further explained that, the introduction of additional prefixes was part and parcel of measures put in place to facilitate registration of vehicles and ease congestion at stations.
Also, the statement encouraged Customers to visit the stations in close proximity to them for their preferred prefixes as well as DVLA offices to seek the assistance of DVLA staff and not middlemen.
However, according to the statement, the Authority have commissioned a rigorous investigation into an issue concerning vehicles with same registration number that was shared on the social media couple of days ago.
Therefore, gave an assurance that the Authority would inform the public as soon as the initial investigations were completed.
