Senate Committee Slashes Price Of Number Plate, Driver’s Licence

In a report submitted to the Senate after a two-day public hearing on the price of the new number plate and driver’s licence that was fixed by the FRSC, the Senate Committee on Federal Character and Intergovernmental Affairs has decided to slash the price of the new vehicle number plate and driver’s licence to N8,400 and N4,000 respectively.

The Committee also recommended that motorcycle plate number and rider’s licence should return to the old rate of N1, 500 and N750 respectively, since majority of the motorcyclists are poor. Similarly, the sum of N8,400 is being recommended as the price of a standard motor vehicle number plate instead of N15,000, while the price of the driver’s licence should be reduced from N6,000 to N4,000.

The committee, however, recommended that FRSC should extend the deadline given for the procurement of the new number plate and driver’s licence by another six months.
