The Director General of Bureau for Public Service Reform (BPSR), Dr Abah has highly appreciated the Federal Road Safety Corp (FRSC) for its commitment in the driver’s licence reform. He also glorified the achievement that the Corps has gained since its first production a few years ago.
This encouragement was given by Dr Abah while he was briefing the BPSR study conducted to identify the roles of different stakeholders in producing security documents and the obstacles during the implementation of the reform.
The aforementioned stakeholders include the driving schools, Vehicle Inspection Officers and the FRSC. After completing neccesary training and paying fees, applicants will receive their licenses designed and issued by the FRSC.

Common difficulties detected by the BPSR study were:
- The isolation of involved agencies
- Historical issues of fake driver’s licence
- Intermittent internet connectivity
- Delay in fund release and unstable power supply
- Poor signings at the Board of Internal Revenue to guide the candidates

- The desire to bypass the legal process.
Dr Abah also gave an advice that the Corps should put more efforts to continuously improve their services while still have to ensure the people's safety.
