In Port Harcourt, I know that road worthiness certificate is basically for commercial vehicles. I have never paid for that certificate and will never pay. I don't know of other states.
Mind you, this is one certificate i think should not be introduced if FRSC do their work well. As for age, i don't think there is any, it is for all commercial vehicles

Very good this issue has always agitated my mind, i drive a 2003 car and i got the Road Worthiness cert. but nobody has ever requested for it.

But for information purpose, what specific age for older or newer cars?

Only commercial vehicles require road worthiness certificate, private vehicles only need MOT papers.

Interesting, as i was stopped by VIO and had to part with 5k for not having road worthiness or Mot but is come to my knowledge that only newer cars can possibly get mot and older ones get road worthiness. its best to have it in hand as you never know when you might get stopped by these vio guys. police no get wahala.
