The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has on Wednesday cautioned the general public against obtaining the driver’s licence by proxy as it urged prospective applicants to obtain the document through due process.
The caution was made known by the Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, during a one-day workshop organised for the Corps Heads of Driving License Centres.
“There will be no more collection of driver’s licence by proxy; prospective applicants will have to come by themselves and be captured to avoid obtaining fake license.
“Also, fresh applicants must obtain permit from an approved driving school and undergo all necessary processes before they will be issued the document,’’ Oyeyemi said.
Oyeyemi also said the issue of integrity of driver’s licence was raised when the corps visited the National Assembly recently, assuring that the corps was poised to tackle the issue of fake licence.
The corps marshal restated that the document could be obtained with only N6, 350 and advised applicants to report any personnel of the corps who demanded more than the amount.
