Parliament’s Roads and Transport Committee and the Driver Vehicle and Licensing Authority (DVLA) are expected to meet over the introduction of the new smart driving licence.

The licence will officially be introduced on 7 November 2017 by the DVLA.

Parliament and the DVLA are meeting over the licence because drivers are unhappy with it due to low consultation and education.

The drivers say they will strike should the DVLA change the existing licence.

To address the concerns of the drivers, Ranking Member on the Roads and Transport Committee of parliament Kwame Agbodza told Class News that the transports committee has scheduled a meeting with the DVLA over the matter.

“I had an off the record chat with my chairman this morning and he was also not fully briefed …so he has decided that we invite the DVLA to brief us so that we can all be on the same page. So, I’m hopeful that information went through to DVLA through the clerk’s office to invite them to come to parliament,” he said.
