FRSC Driver’s License: How to Obtain Yours


Before you can be legally permitted to drive a vehicle in Nigeria, you need to obtain a driver’s license from the Federal Road Safety Commission. The driver’s license also serves as a very good means of identification accepted and recognized internationally.

Obtaining a driver’s license in Nigeria is really easy when you follow these steps-:

  • Attend a Master Driving School with an FRSC accredited license. It is important that you learn the traffic rules in Nigeria to in order to protect yourself and other road users.
  • When your driving school instructor is satisfied with your performance, he would present you toa Vehicle Inspection Officer (VIO) who would then conduct a driving test for you and issue you with a certificate of proficiency if you pass the test.
  • You would then have to apply in person at the nearest Driver’s Licensing center to you. You have to apply in person because your biometric data would have to be captured.
  • Make payments for thelicense at designated banks. Don’t give money to anyone to pay for you. The official price for the license is N6, 000 but I’ve heard people say they paid up to N12,000 to obtain one.
  • Fill the required form and present to the Drivers licensing center for approval.
  • Go for your biometric data capturing at the FRSC office.

When you complete the process, you would be given a temporary license that would be valid for 60 days. Your license should however be out before the end of those 60 days.

    If you want to process your driver’s licence yourself to cut down cost to the official amount without any tip. it very good, but prepare yourself for VIO and FRSC frustrations, by fabricating different excuses which is delaying and boring.

    1. Hello Wengar,
      A friend of mine renewed recently and he was made to do all the test he did when getting the new license for the 1st time. Eye test, paper test and driving school test.
      So its best you go to the nearest frsc/vio office.
