Nigerians can now obtain a driver's licence without going through so much stress, thanks to the new Bypass Capture introduced by the FRSC.

The Federal Road Safety Corps has introduced a new and more efficient system of obtaining a driver’s licence in the country called Bypass Capture.

Making the announcement to the public on Wednesday, June 19, 2019, in Abuja, Mr Bisi Kazeem, Public Education Officer of the Corps, said that the Bypass Capture Scheme was an initiative aimed at reducing the hassle people go through in obtaining their licence. With this, driver’s licence issuance will no longer take excessive time.

According to the official of the corps, one who wants to obtain a driver’s licence is required to make payment for it online, and would be informed to come pick it up at a collection center when it is processed. The need to visit a Driver’s Licence Center (DLC) for biometric information recapturing is no longer necessary. The scheme is available to applicants who want to apply for re-issuing or renewal of an expired licence.

“An applicant who is either renewing or applying for a re-issue can use the Bypass Capture feature,” he stated.

Bisi further explained that the Bypass Capture would only be accessible to applicants who had previously entered their biometric information on the system at the corps licence centers. Application for the Bypass Capture can only be done for first time renewal.

“The second renewal which will be after a minimum of six years, will require an applicant to recapture his biometrics,’’ he concluded.
