The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC) says it will submit a proposal to the Joint Task Board of the commission for a review of the drivers’ license fees due to exchange rate.
Dr Boboye Oyeyemi, the Corps Marshal made this known on Wednesday at the capacity building workshop for Sector Heads of Drivers’ License Centres in Abuja.
Oyeyemi said that the review was necessitated by the prevailing foreign exchange and capacity; hence the corps was considering forwarding a submission for the price review because the system could not continue running this way.
He said that with the joint task board decision, the validity had been increased from three to five years with options of either renewing for three years with N6, 350 or five years with 10, 350 respectively.
“FRSC is considering forwarding a proposal to the Joint Task Board to consider marginal increase in the cost of drivers’ license because the prices of materials being used have gone up.
