DVLA: Nana Aba Anamoah’s Range Rover Not Registered With Us
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has today, 23rd June 2020 issued a press statement indicating that the Range Rover SUV which was reportedly given to Ghanaian award winning media personality; Nana Aba Anamoah as a birthday present has not been entered in the register maintained by the Licensing Authority.
This comes after images of two motor vehicles bearing the same registration number plate marked GR 2050-20 started circulating on social media.
One of these vehicles was the car Nana Aba Anamoah received as a gift on her birthday.
In the press statement the DVLA wrote;
“The attention of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has been drawn to a photograph on social media of two motor vehicles bearing the same registration number plate marked; GR 2050-20, affixed on a white Nissan Rogue Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) and Black Range Rover SUV.
The Licensing Authority can confirm that the white Nissan Rogue SUV has been registered and assigned with the registration number in consonance with the Road Traffic registration.
However, checks in the system indicate that the Black Range Rover is not registered.
The Authority wishes to remind vehicle owners and the general public that a person shall not drive a motor vehicle or trailer unless it is registered.
The Road Traffic Act, 2004 (Act 683) Section 41(1) states that a person who uses or keeps a motor vehicle or trailer not being an exempt motor vehicle on a road when particulars of the motor vehicle or trailer have not been entered in the register maintained by the Licensing Authority, commits an offence and is liable for a summary conviction to a fine not exceeding 250 penalty units or to a term of imprisonment not exceeding 12 months or to both.
We have consequently commenced investigation into the circumstance that led to the violation of the road traffic law in this case.
The Authority would not hesitate in its efforts to bring the perpetrators to face the full rigors of the law as these infractions have security and safety implications to road users.
We however urge the owner of the Range Rover SUV, to visit any of our offices to regularise the process for genuine registration number plate.
As a regulatory Authority tasked with the responsibility to provide a regulated framework for an enhanced and effective administration of drivers and vehicles, we remain focused to ensure best practices for licensing drivers and vehicles to promote road safety.
