NIN is Compulsory For Issuance & Reissuance of License - FRSC


According to Mr Adebisi Olajide of the FRSC, the National Identification Number (NIN) was a prerequisite for issuance and renewal of driver’s licence.

“NIN is a prerequisite for drivers who want to have their driver’s licence and those seeking renewal of theirs.

“This has been a big problem with some of the applicants, because most of them have issues with their dates of birth not corresponding with their information on the FRSC portal.

“Drivers need to ensure that they have their NIN before proceeding to obtain or renew their driver’s licence,” Olajide said.

He, however, urged motorists to stop patronising quacks in the process of obtaining or renewing their driver’s licence because of the NIN, saying that anybody caught would be dealt with in accordance with the law.
