Expert Proffers Solution to Delay in Nigerian Driving Licence Renewal

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) has been urged to partner with Nigeria Postal Services(NIPOST), as part of measures to ease challenges associated with drivers licence renewal in the country.

A Road Safety expert and founder of Safety Beyond Borders, Mr. Patrick Adelusi, made the call during the second edition of Nigerian Auto Journalists Association’s (NAJA’s) training workshop held in Lagos last week.

He said a driver should not have to visit the commission’s office to renew a driving licence.

“There is no need to go to FRSC for licence renewal,” he pointed out. “Since the data is with them, applicants should pay and fill relevant information online.  On its part, FRSC should send the processed licence through NIPOST”.

Also making presentation at the occasion, the Corps Marshal and Chief Executive Officer of Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, explained that the price for three years duration driver’s licence remains N6,350, advising motorists to resist any attempt to make them to pay more.

He explained: “The official rate of driver’s licence as set by the Joint Tax Board (JTB) is N6,350. People should endeavour to fight for their rights.”

The FRSC boss, who was represented by the Assistant Corps Marshal and the Zonal Commanding Officer, Lagos and Ogun, Sheu Zaki, described road accident as one of the major causes of deaths worldwide.

He challenged motorist s and members of the public to contribute to safer road culture by adhering to existing rules.

He claimed that FRSC’s response time to incidence is 15 minutes, depending on distance, adding that the commission successfully rescued 401,000 accident victims between 2011 and 2016.
