Smart Number Plates A Possibility
The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has launched a more advanced web-based verification portal for driver’s license and number plates.
Corps Marshal Boboye Oyeyemi as saying this at a training workshop for personnel of security agencies at the Corps headquarter Abuja.
Oyeyemi said the new portal will enable the system provide information such as demographics, biometrics and offences committed by the holders of the Driver’s licence and user of the number plate.
He added that the new system also applies to the speed limiting device portal, driving school standardization portal and Road transport safety standardization portal.
The corps marshal further said the various driving schools across the country were now being certified and linked to the advanced portal to enable the corps monitor the number of students admitted, the curriculum and competence of the students they present for driver’s license.
He added that there were different classes of the license for drivers but competence remains the prerequisite for one to acquire any class of the license.
Oyeyemi said more security features have been built into the system to make it impossible for the licences to be forged or obtained by proxy without undergoing biometrics data and physical capturing.
Retaining a Registration Number
This process involves getting a retention certificate for your registration number. It lasts for 10 years and costs £80. As with the vehicle to vehicle transfer process, the easiest way to do this is online. You will need the vehicle registration certificate for the vehicle you are transferring the registration number away from. Use this form to complete the details in the online process.
Once complete, you will get an email confirmation. This email will also give you the new registration number for the vehicle. Shortly after this you will receive (by post) a vehicle registration certificate for the vehicle with the new registration number. You will also get the retention certificate for your registration number.
