The Ministry of Transport has debunked a document that has been circulating, suggesting there will be an increase in the stamp fee for driver’s licenses next year.
The fake document indicated that the fee would increase from 5000 FCFA to 25000 FCFA from January 2024.
“The Ministry of Transport brings to the attention of national and international public opinion that this is fake news” a statement from the communication unit of the ministry said.
“There are no plans to increase the stamp duty on Driver’s Licence” it added.
However, 5000 FCFA which is considered the fixed cost, is disputed by some people who say they have had to pay more.
