How Much Is The Cost Of Obtaining A Number Plate by sooperrescue(m): 12:59am On Aug 01, 2019
I have been wondering how much it would cost for me to have a number plate. I want to guide myself and other people on the way forward. What is the actual cost? The number plate cost 12500, vehicle registration is 5000, vehicle license is 3500 for example, road worthy certificate is 3000, and insurance is 5000. Little taxes added to 2650. Total costs is less than 32k and yet we allow touts to charge more than 45k for the number plate. What is the solution to the problem which is preventing motorists from getting genuine number plate?

Thank you for sharing this with the public. What I think is responsible for the hike is that the public/civil service is corrupted and would not want to deal directly with the end user without the intervention of a third party with whom they connive to extort the final users.

That's a wrong assumption. Since the process is outlined, it is easy to get it done in two hours. A lot of people will buy a car and start saving money to register the car. Very funny. This proxy registration has made mockery of the process. I saw the insurance policy of a Toyota hiace and the bus was recorded as SUV in the policy. A Ford windstar bus was given mot certificate for 6 months because bus was written on it meanwhile it was a private vehicle. A range rover with black color had brown as the colour on the insurance policy. A 2006 range rover sport was recorded as 2013 model . These are issues that proxy registration has been causing the system and the data collected will be inaccurate and then the chances of vehicle recovery will be very low because the system is muddled up.

Hmmm. The price listed on the board was taken from the office of the Gm of mvaa. Go through the process. The 33k includes insurance and Roadworthiness Certificate. It is a process that you can do. I got my driver's license by myself and it gave me much assurance on the road. There are two cars attached to a number and it is common in Lagos. Maybe we should get together, those who want to get number plates and we will all follow the procedures together. It is the price that we have to pay to end the fraud in the system. The one that makes me angry the most is the cmr. The cmr is charged at 1000 per vehicle and they will give you a photocopy of the receipt with 9 other vehicles. They collect 10k and issue 1k receipt. On the cmr certificate, it's stated that the cost is 100 naira but on the mvaa price list, it is 1k per vehicle. They also charge 500 naira for customs and 500 for police. I called the customs office and they told me to ask mvaa which account number was the money paid to. If we don't do something now, we will join those who will buy a car and start saving money for number plate.

6,350 for 3 years and 10500 for 5 years. If you choose to patronize touts, your negotiation will determine the price. The first time I got the license, I went through the process and got the temporary license and after 3 months, I got the original. Renewal without capturing is quicker now.

Good point made Boss. The transparency is the problem. Can a 'local'man walk into mvaa office boldly to get plate number without them indirectly referring you to touts
