Here is an article which is set to give you guidelines and full details on how to apply for drivers license and easy way to renew your drivers license here in Nigeria without any stress.
WHAT IS Drivers License
The drivers license is a legal document issued by the federal government of Nigeria, (though it’s not only in Nigeria that Drivers license are issued, it is issued everywhere in the world) empowering the right and freedom to its citizens and non citizens or residents to drive.
With the drivers license, citizens have the right to drive around anywhere without being harassed or intimidated. In 2012, the Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) launched a new commercial drivers license with security features that require a mandatory medical certification of drivers before issuance.
The license expired in a three-year terminal date after which motorists were expected to renew the document. However, in 2016, the federal government endorsed the production of another driving license that will have a five-year expiry period.
In Nigeria, the minimum age to qualify for a drivers license is 18. The applicant would first attend training at an accredited driving school as the prerequisite to get his/her license.
