In its bid to ensure transparency and accountability in vehicle license administration in Delta State, the Delta State Board of Internal Revenue (DBIR) has released the official rate for vehicle registration in the state.

This was contained in a statement issued in Warri, by the Chairman of the board, Sir Monday Onyeme who stated that the decision to publicise the price list was a consequence of the board’s desire to ensure that members of the public do not fall victim to unscrupulous racketeers who procure fake vehicle particulars for them when they can easily get genuine ones at affordable prices.

The statement enjoined members of the public to ensure that they visit the nearest motor licensing office and request to see the Motor Licensing Officer in charge, rather than patronizing touts who will end up procuring fake vehicle particulars that will eventually put them on the wrong side of the law.
