Corps Marshal of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, has advised Nigerians not to pay more than N6,350 to procure the original Driver’s Licence (DL), stressing that they can obtain it from all FRSC offices across the country.
Oyeyemi made this known while speaking in Abuja at a one-day workshop organized by the commission for members of security agencies in the country on verification procedure of DL and number plates.
He said “Members of the public who give money and passport size photograph to anybody in order to collect driver’s licence are doing disservice to themselves.
“Going through third party costs more money and produces fake licence to unsuspecting applicants, which is an offence. Cost of original driver’s license is N6,350 and the applicant must go for biometrics at any licencing office across the country to obtain the license.
“This is safer and costs less compared to the ones that pay third party for driver’s licence and at the end of the day, they will be apprehended for carrying fake license,” the corps marshal said.
Oyeyemi further warned that anyone found with a fake license would be prosecuted as it is a criminal offence.
