FRSC begins operation ‘show your driver’s licence’

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in Lagos says it will start mandating drivers to show their licence and registration on Monday.

Olusegun Ogungbemide, the state’s corps commander, said the operation will end on October 10.

The sector commander decried the high rate of permanent driver’s licences unpicked in the state.

“The first phase of the special patrol tagged ‘Operation Show your driver’s licence’ showed that some motorists still drive without their valid driver’s licence while some don’t have at all,” he said.

“With the recent increase in vehicular movements as a result of the ember months, there is the need for all drivers to be handy with their driver’s licences.

“The exercise will ensure all drivers have valid vehicle papers as the command begins ‘Operation Show Your Driver’s Licence and Vehicle licence’.”
