DVLA to release specialised stickers for luxurious vehicles
The Driver, Vehicle and Licensing Authority (DVLA) will, in January next year, release specialised stickers for the luxurious vehicles levy.
This is in compliance with the LVL law, Act 949, passed by Parliament this year for vehicles with high engine capacities.
Mr Pius Enam Hadzide, a Deputy Minister of Information, said this at a news briefing in Accra on Sunday.
For instance, vehicles with engine capacities of 2,950 cubic centimetres to 3,549 would pay GH¢1,000 as levy.
Those with 3,550 cubic centimetres to 4,049 would pay a levy of GH¢1,500, while vehicles with capacities above 4,049 cubic centimetres would pay a levy of GH¢2,000.
The specialised DVLA stickers are of the same size and shape like the normal road worthy stickers, except that they have been painted in different colours, with additional information according to different dimensions.
However, he said some vehicles such as tractors and commercial vehicles that have the capacity to transport more than 10 persons, and those for transporting goods that exceed 2,950 cubic centimetres, have been exempted from paying the levy.
Those who change their car engines to outwit the DVLA will be sanctioned according to law, he added.
