I come from Ghana and there are several ethic groups in Ghana (over a 100 to be exact), and as a result I’m a Dagomba! Dagombas are an ethnic group of the Kingdom of Dagbon (mainly in the Northern Region of Ghana) in the sparse savanna region below the sahelian belt, known as ...

Getting A New Driver’s License In Ghana

Getting A New Driver's License In Ghana

  Getting a driver’s license can be a gruesome process, however, very rewarding. I recently went through the process of getting a driver’s license for the first time and there were a couple of things I wish I knew before starting the process. I hope you’d be able to learn a few things from my experience and be better prepared for the process. I started the process by first registering  at a driving school for lessons. You will need to go to a driving school before you start the process at DVLA, it’s just easier that way. I already knew ...
