The Director for Driver Training, Testing and Licensing at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), Cheyuo Wiena Musah, has said that illiterates have no business engaging in driving.
 

Speaking at a media briefing on Tuesday, Mr. Musah indicated that driving is a privilege and so the DVLA cannot watch on while illiterates drive and put the lives of Ghanaians in danger.

“We began telling all Ghanaians that from 2007, if you have not gone to school, you can no longer continue driving as it has been in the past. We are not saying those without certificate. If you cannot read and write, we are sorry, driving is a privilege; you can’t get a driving license. It is simple,” he stated.

Some commercial drivers are against a policy by the DVLA which they claim makes it extremely difficult to obtain a driving license. The Committed Drivers Association started a strike action on Monday, June 1, 2015 to protest, among other things, a newly introduced electronic road worthiness sticker, compulsory driving course and the compulsory installation of seat belts in commercial vehicles.
