The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) is a public sector organisation under the Ministry of Transport, with the mandate to issue driving licenses, organise the collection of vehicle excise duty (also known as road tax and road fund license) and sell personalised registrations.
You will need the DVLA along the way if you intend to drive in Ghana. Once you apply for a driver’s license, it is also mandatory to renew or verify it every two years in Ghana. Check behind your license card to find your renewal dates.
Unlike other countries that allows you to renew your driver’s license online, Ghana is different; because you are expected to visit the DVLA’s office in person before your renewal request can be processed.
