Old boy with this your English nobody would issue you with a driver's license o. Try and moderate your English well, so that you would not be denied a license.

I dread the day I would start mine. I wonder the level incompetence in some of this government agency. Instead of subjecting hapless citizens to another rigours of data capturing, why not use the data captured for the national ID card or better still the one captured by INEC. How many database are we going to create in this country. Why are the govt agency not reasoning with their head? With the way things are going we can not rule out massive racketeering and fake driver's licencse, thereby going back to square one.

nikkyshyne: I registered in february or so and made all necessary payments. Did the eye test and answered some cheap questions. I got my form which I could use temporarily but was told to come back in september for the capture

Obalende branch by the way.

kindly ignore that and go straight for the capture... Since you have already done the other steps

azeezbaba: I did mine today @ Mabushi, Abuja

The process started 1 week ago when I paid 10K and submitted a photocopy of my old licence. I recieved a call today that I should come for Biometrics data capture which I did and I was given my temporary licence which will expire in 3 months. I was told the Original licence would have been printed before then. I guess my money worked for me

I think Nigerians are usually the ones that encourage people in Authority to break the rules. The cost of the new DL is 6,350... Anything more is either blind cheating or u are on your way to getting a fake license. I suggest we start dropping names of FRSC officials that collect more than the stipulated amount. I tell u the truth, they will be dealt with time.... Let it be seen that we have helped govt with info.

baysun2000: I am just fed up with the process. I had my own clearance since Novvember 2012 and was told to come 3 months time for data capturing. 3 months came, I was told the machine is bad, that I should drop my number, that they will SMS me when the machine is ready. Since then I have been waiting.
I don't mind to wait endlessly as long I have covering papers frm them. I dnt have time for their trash. I have job at hand, if they don't. Spssssssssss

Which of the centre is this I think you should just go to the centre... How many people do you really think they can sms?

The data captured by inec is not sufficient. Inec's biometric only captures your thumb, this captures your 10 fingers. NIM's record is also not sufficient as their system does not employ the level of sophistication put in the current FRSC process..... Go ahead and obtain the fake, you will have yourself to blame... The accredited processing offices is as provided in the link: https://www.nigeriadriverslicence.org/pages/processingOffice anything else from what is on that site is surely a scam...
Yes the process is a lil rough, but it can only get better.

That's my guy. They cant even try that with me. Last time, they stopped a vehicle in front of me and the guy came after me. I've to engage the reverse gear to create a space and seeing that I wasn't willing to surrender, he jumped off my bonnet as I zoomed off. The other day at the Alausa Toll Gate area, I was towing my SUV with a Honda Bulldog and they overtook and ordered me to pull over. I kept going and after an unsuccessful hot chase, they were the ones that eventually pulled over. I went to their office at Sura/Obalende, Lagos last year to renew my licence which expired in 2011 and after all the normal documentations, they told me their capturing machine is bad. I left there and had never gone back again. These people take advantage of every opportunity to make things difficult for people.

I've been driving since 2011 without a valid license. I even drove down to the East twice last year.It is not worth waisting my time. I have a job to protect, so dont expect me to waist 3-4 workdays because of a plastic paper which will only last 3 years.
Re: New Frsc Driver's License by marjo: 9:50am On May 22, 2013
Went for mine in January 2013, did the test and followed the whole process. was given a temporary license that expired in March. I went back there and they keep telling me that I should use it like that and if i am stopped I should show the officer my processing papers. I've been there twice to date trying to get someone to write an extension date or stamp something on it as a more valid proof of extension but they keep refusing so i am using it like that. the whole process(like most things in Nigeria ) is designed to frustrate people and get money out of citizens. Why start what they do not have the capacity to finish. its all a racket. By the way, i went to the VIO/FRSC office in Ikeja beside the Ikeja court.
Re: New Frsc Driver's License by nokingasgod: 9:58am On May 22, 2013
onandon: It has been over 2 months since I paid for a new license, I passed all the tests and was directed to an office to get a "capture" date. I went to the FRSC office and asked the young man there for the procedure to get a capture date, he pointed to 2 numbers on the wall ( 08033927892 and 08066067903) and asked me to call any of the numbers to get a date. I have been calling for 2 months now,one day a lady answered the phone and asked I call back in a months time, I was shocked. Fast forward 2 months, I have been calling the numbers but the phone keeps ringing and no one ever answers, I have had my completed forms and receipt with me for 2 months, this is very frustrating. What kind of country is this ? like seriously !!!!!!!!!!

THIS IS THE CITY CALLED SODOM

Re: New Frsc Driver's License by Jethrovich(m): 10:46am On May 22, 2013
How come new one's are that expensive. i have contacted two driving schools and they were saying 17 500 and 18 000 to get the new one and it would take two to three weeks. Also saying the old one is still available.

so for one that has to go to a driving school and still want a new one without paying that much, how do one bypass the driving school and go straight to FRSC?

There's gross inconsistency, inefficiency, incompetenece and corruption associated with getting DL currently.

The entire FRSC and other License issueing authorities should be overhauled beginning with the sacking of their top management.

This is May ending and the one I renewed in Novemeber last year is still pending even after the expiration of the temporary one License I was issued.

I can confirm that since the beginning of this year no one has recived a new DL in the city of Port Harcourt in particular and its environs. Yet there are FRSC officials on the roads and street corners checking particulars!

Let the President and the National Assemblies take immediate steps at stopping these corrupt officers from perpectuating this national embarrassment: that we can't make simple things work.

Let one of your first decisions be to KEEP A CLOSED MOUTH AND OPEN EARS AND EYES. As a reminder to yourself to follow this advice, it will be helpful if you copy the following epigram in large letters and place it where you will see it daily. "TELL THE WORLD WHAT YOU INTO.

As of Frsc,I which there will be one of their representative here on Nairaland to give their boss feedback of their action.
Re: New Frsc Driver's License by teelacruz(m): 9:18pm On May 22, 2013
I have learnt my lessons. Let any VIO in particular stand on my way and let others watch to tell his/her relatives his/her predicament. i tried it with them along Ketu-Ikorodu road facing the man directly, i never knew they are trained for running too.

Re: New Frsc Driver's License by mafioso47(m): 11:45pm On May 23, 2013
Amelian: Have gotten mine.... Damn! It was so stressful, I fell ill for two days after the whole exercise... First , go to FRSC office at Ojodu, after Omole phase 2. And ask any of the officers at the gate to direct you to the main quarters where the form is collected. Then talk to one of the officers at the main quarters they will tell you , processes on how to go about it... But be ready to wait in different queues for long long hours, and u will go through two different eye tests, also a driving test....and a short exam about driving codes. If u pass the test, lucky you, then the next crucial stage of Capture comes up...which u must be there before 7am... Anything after 7am for Capture? U are on your own.. That day of capture is another stressful day on its own ... Be ready to spend the whole day there.. At the end of that day, u will be given another 3 months to come take a picture, with your finger prints taken...and other datas, be ready also to spend another full day there...
See queues, u go bow nah.... Every appointment day, they attend to 250 people , on every appointment day... The driver license is honestly for the Brave hearts !......
Omo, I fell ill after the last lap... Am still regaining myself since those fateful weeks. sad cry
But at last, I av an Authentic driver license...
Beginners and renewals can go to Ojodu headquarter , FRSC...
Best of luck, cause anyone going there, really need all the luck they can lay their hands on...
Lemme take my remaining blood tonic... sad
did you pay any money? And what was d driving test like? Was it an auto or manual Transmission type of vehicle? I dont think there is need for all this.
