Mr. Patrick Okoyeocha, Sector Commander, Delta State, Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), on Tuesday said that plans to initiate drive on public awareness towards drivers’ license collection via motor parks, churches, and media house is underway.
Advocate.ng gathered that no fewer than 7,500 permanent driver’s licenses were yet to be collected in the state.
Speaking Okoyeocha, in an interview with newsmen said, “The Command has intensified its public awareness drive on applicants of driver’s license to come and claim their licenses via Motor Parks, Churches, and Media Houses.
“There is also a profound collaboration with the Delta State Board of Internal Revenue to also intensify public awareness in that direction,” he said.
The commander said that as of July, the total number of unclaimed driver’s licenses stood at 7,500.
He frowned at some motorists who processed their driver’s license and never bothered to go back to Motor Licensing Office to collect them.
“Drivers with temporary driver’s license should go to the Motor Licensing Office where they had their biometric capturing and collect their permanent driver’s license.
Okoyeocha added that possession of a valid license was still a major requirement for driving in the country.
He warned that the absence of it constitutes traffic infractions and endangered the lives of road users. (NAN)
