Are you wondering where to get driver's license in your new city in Nigeria? Check out all the driver's license centers and addresses close to you.

Are you a new driver in a familiar environment? Or you just relocated to another city? You are probably thinking how you can get a driver’s license in the city where you are. The good news is, it might be just blocks away from you. Driving your car around town without a proper license is very risky and you are putting yourself at the mercy of agencies in charge of dealing with drivers without license. This driving permit officially known as the Nigerian Driver’s License is a required document which is issued by the Federal Government of Nigeria, allowing some persons to operate or drive one or multiple vehicles on the roads in all states in the federation.

List of 188 driver's license in Nigeria

Without this document, you are not allowed to drive in the country. The only exception to this, is if you have a learner’ permit, showing you are still under the guide of a driving school. If you are still wondering how you can obtain one for yourself, check out the comprehensive guide to get a driver license in Nigeria here on Naijauto.

It is however important to inform you about places in the country where you can get yourself a new driver’s license or possibly for renewal. There are 188 centers currently available across the country where you can get your license.
