|Frsc Lagos State Command Appeals To Applicants To Pick Up Their Drivers License by Tripple34(m): 7:02pm On Feb 24, 2018|
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has said that there is no need for data capturing while applying for renewal of driver’s license. Hyginus Omeje, the FRSC Lagos state sector commander said this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday, February 24, adding that the agency departed from the old system a long time ago. ”I want to use this opportunity to tell motorists that they can renew their license without going through capture. “The choice of coming to capture is yours, as long as we have your database at the initial stage and its already in the system, you don’t really need to be captured any longer,” he said. Omeje said that there is provision to bypass capture in the new process of renewal of license.
”The whole essence of renewal is to update your records. You might have changed your residential address and all other variables except date of birth which is constant. “And it is possible that somewhere somehow you had an accident that has given you mark or scars on your face, that has not been there before and if you don’t do the update, of not going for capture, you may be embarrassed when you go to the embassy,” Omeje noted. He also advised motorists to go to their various centers for collection of their drivers' licenses. NAN reports that over 55,000 motorists were yet to collect their processed drivers’ licenses at various designated centers in Lagos state. The sector commander had said in October, that about 55,412 processed drivers’ licenses were ready and waiting for collection by their owners at the various designated centers in the state. According to him, there are no backlogs on the issuance of drivers’ licenses again in the Lagos state. “We have 55,412 uncollected licenses across our stations in Lagos state. “It is unfortunate that people do not come to collect their licenses. “We produced 48, 423 out of which 14,323 were fresh; 33,899 were renewed and 199 were re-issued as a result of loss or damage.
The sector commander appealed to the motorists, who have applied for drivers’ license to visit the centers and collect their licenses before the expiration date. Omeje said that Lagos command had established some dedicated numbers for whoever has any complaint concerning either delay in issuance or collection of the licenses. According to Omeje, 08150654567 is the number to call by any applicant in case there is a delay in issuance of the driver licenses. He said that the numbers were created solely for the purpose of attending to issues related to licensing. The sector commander noted that drivers could now renew their licenses for N10,350 for a five-year duration while a three-years license costs N6,350.
