The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) in collaboration with the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) leadership is set to introduce the Tertiary Drive Project.
The project is set to help students to learn how to drive, acquire license before completing school and can also renew their license as well.
Speaking in an interview with the Ashanti Regional Manager of DVLA, Mr Amos Abaka after the meeting with the KNUST leadership, he stated that it was fruitful and positive.
‘The University has put measures in place for this project to come to life and a success and has even acquired a land for us to help with the project’he added.
The University Relations Officer, Dr Norris Bekoe also added that the university believes in capacity building in any shape or form and also any kind of partnership helps humanity.
The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA), as part of strategies being introduced to engender improved services, have come up with a product that involves the issue of a driver’s licence to students in all tertiary institutions throughout the country.
The product which is christened Tertiary Students Drive (TertSDrive) seeks to grant opportunity to all students who are willing to acquire a driver’s licence to do so in the comfort and convenience of their campuses.
The essence is to make it possible for students who find jobs that would require driving to provide added value and market-focused their driver’s licence so they do not lose the job opportunity.
