FRSC to increase vehicle, driver’s licence fees

FRSC to increase vehicle, driver's licence fees

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) will effect an increase in the charges of vehicle and driver’s license. This is in order to keep up with Nigeria’s surging inflation rates and subsequent increase in the running costs of FRSC’s activities nationwide.

Speaking at the 136th meeting of the Joint Tax Board (JTB) held in Abuja, FRSC corps marshal, Boboye Oyeyemi announced:

“N6,000 to get a driver’s licence and N12,000 for vehicle plate number is too poor. We are spending so much to produce them. I’m running over 200 in stations across the country. I shouldn’t be providing that. The states should.

“When I came in last year, the popular Mikano generator was N1.5 million, now it’s N3.8 million. Only Kwara State provided a generator. Majority of the states defaulted in providing that. All states should have secured offices. They should own these stations and I want to relocate workstations there. I want to stamp out corruption. Enough is enough.

“So, for us, our running costs is too high and the state.”
