Management of the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) has suspended and put on definite hold the compulsory levying of vehicle owners to get first aid kits as a prerequisite for the annual vehicle registration process.

Following the ongoing annual Vehicle Registration and Licensing Regime, the DVLA introduced a compulsory “First Aid Kit” as a perquisite for the exercise.

According to a release from DVLA and copied to on 4th January, 2018, indicated that, in view of this development, there had been public outcry and concern about the related pricing attendant therewith.

It said the Governing Board of the DVLA acknowledges that, there has not been the necessary public education, discussion and sensitization with relevant stakeholders.

The Board therefore would want to advise our patronizing clients/customers that the introduction of the “First Aid Kit” has been suspended and put on definite hold, the release said. “We unreservedly apologize to the general public for any inconvenience occasioned,” the release added.
