How To Replace A lost Driver's License In Nigeria

Introduction

It’s exhausting and impatient to drive in Nigeria, particularly in Lagos and Port-Harcourt, where the roads are congested. When drivers are permitted to operate a vehicle, it is beneficial. Having a drivers’ license has a significant impact on a driver’s ability to safely operate a vehicle. In many cases, we finafd up paying extra or being billed by charlatans who in turn issue a bogus license to the unknowing drivers while we are trying to recover a lost drivers license.

Drivers in Nigeria are required to renew their license every three to five years in order to operate a vehicle on the country’s roads. It’s important to acquire a new license as soon as possible if you lose your current one or it expires.

What happens if you get behind the wheel without a license?

Drivers in Nigeria who are caught driving illegally face severe punishments, such as having their vehicles confiscated and having their vehicle’s details or other documents taken. Your car may be towed to the closest police station or Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC; a Nigerian road and transportation regulatory organization) and you might be fined up to 10,000 or more, depending on the infraction. This is worse than having your vehicle impounded.
