The Lagos Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has begun a man-hunting for those driving in Lagos State without valid driver's license. Read on!

As we have informed in our previous post Show your driver's license or be fined N10,000 - FRSC enforces the law in Lagos, from Monday, May 20st will be the first day FRSC launches their campaign.

Operation Show Your Driver’s License”, a new road policy organized by the Lagos Sector Command of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) got fully operational. This means any motorist that defaults the rule would pay 10,000 naira fine.

Mr. Hyginus, who happens to be the State Sector Commander, stated this via a personal statement on Wednesday, which was signed by the Head of Public Education sector, Florence Edor, who is also the Superintendent Route commander (SRC).

For the next two weeks, the ‘Operation Show your driver license will be fully activated starting from today. It is an effective way of curbing rising number of people driving vehicles without valid driver’s license within the state. It was also noted that many of these motorists hadn’t made any attempt to return to licensing offices to get their permanent driver license.

Defaulting motorists without valid driver's license would be asked to pay a fine of 10000 naira

It is very possible your name falls among those unclaimed 24,000 licenses, which was recently released by FRSC.

We are starting our patrol operation by May 20, as we have 64,468 uncollected permanent driver’s license across the state.

The sector commander openly revealed his dissatisfaction concerning motorists’ attitude without having a valid license. This according to him is the only recognized driving document that allows anybody to drive on the roads within Nigeria.
