DVLA to introduce new smart driving license in November

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has launched a new driving license to help curb the problem of fake licenses in the country.


At a media launch in Accra on Tuesday, the DVLA confirmed that it will start the issuance of the new licenses from November 7, 2017.


The new licenses will contain security embedded chips, with the personal information of drivers also included.

The time duration for renewal, though, remains the same, with the new licenses still only valid for six years, after which the user needs to renew it.


The DVLA also revealed that the new licenses will be linked to the new national identification system, while also confirming that old licenses are still valid until they expire.


However, getting a new license will require that one pays an extra GHc 91 on top of the previously charged price, with the same amount being charged on all other new services.
