DVLA Fees and Charges to go up in October 2022

This is to help make provision for an annual adjustment of fees and charges that will be levied by Governmental Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs) in line with widespread economic conditions.

In line with a bill passed by The Parliament of the Republic of Ghana on the 14th day of July 2022 on fees and charges.

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), Ghana has referenced a letter issued by the Ministry of Finance to it’s effect.

In the DVLA letter dated 28th September 2022, it is stated that parliament has given approval for increase on  DVLA Fees and Charges for all activities across board. This increment will subsequently be inputted onto the DVLA Payment Platform for clients attention.

The implementation of the increased rates will take effect from Monday 3rd October 2022 after the Payment Platform has been updated.

This means that the Ghanaian citizen will have to pay more in this trying economic times for any DVLA services they may patronize.
