National Identification Number has been made compulsory for vehicle registration in Nigeria
The Federal Road Safety Corps said it made the valid National Identification Number compulsory for all categories of vehicle registration in full compliance with the directive of the Federal Government on the harmonisation of citizens’ data.
The FRSC had begun compliance with this directive since December 21, 2020, when the Corps Marshal directed that all applicants for the National Driver’s Licence must present their NIN before they would be captured for any class of licence.
“The FRSC Corps Marshal, Dr. Boboye Oyeyemi, has also made provision of NIN mandatory for all categories of vehicle registration, effective from second quarter of 2021.
“All applicants of vehicle registration are, therefore, expected to present their NIN as a precondition for the registration of their vehicles.
“And there will be no waivers for anyone, irrespective of their status in the society,” he said.
