Delta Licencing Centers Have Unclaimed 7,408 Driver’s Licences – FRSC


Not less than 7, 408 driver’s licence is lying unclaimed in licensing centres in Delta State due to the failure of the owners to collect them.

The Delta State Commander, Mr. Udeme Eshiet disclosed this to News Agency of Nigeria on Monday.

He said: ‘’ it is worrisome that as at June this year, no fewer than 7,408 driver’s licences processed and approved in 2021 are yet to be collected across our licencing centers in the state.

According to him, while the intention of FRSC is to collaborate with the Delta Board of Internal Revenue to make the process of collection easy and quick, many motorists are reluctant to collect their licences.

He said:‘’The possession of a valid licence remains a major requirement for drivers. It gives the motorists the legal backing and confidence to be on the road and saves them from unnecessary embarrassment.

 ‘’The plan of the command is to intensify campaign on the need for drivers to have their licences while driving. The campaign will also be targeted at awakening the consciousness of the motoring public on the penalty for driving without a valid licence.

‘’These who failed to get their valid driver’s licence would be prosecuted. They will risk 6 months imprisonment or N10, 000 fine or both.

‘’We are not out to punish people but to encourage them to take the processing of their licence serious in order to avoid being arrested. In addition to that, having

their driving licence will enable them to drive on the road without fear of having issues with our personnel.”

While urging motorcycles and tricycles operators to ensure they are registered before plying the road, he said, ‘’what the command is doing is for the overall interest of motorists.’’
