FRSC To Applicants: Patronise Accredited Driving Schools In FCT

The Federal Road Safety Commission (FRSC), has advised applicants of new driving license to patronise any of the 29 accredited driving schools in the FCT.


The FCT Sector Command of the Commission, Mrs Susan Ajenge, gave the advice on Thursday in Abuja.

Ajenge stressed the need for the applicants to learn driving skills and obtain the certificates, accordingly.

“There are 29 accredited driving schools spread all over the territory at the service of the public who are interested in learning how to drive safely on the roads.


“They will ensure that their trainees have adequate driving skills before they issue them certificates, so that they will not put the reputation of their schools at stake.


“That does not mean that FRSC will not carry out its own assessment of applicants before issuing them licenses. All these are to ensure sanity on our roads,” she said.


The sector commander dismissed allegations by some applicants that only a few driving institutes were accredited in the territory which made it difficult for them to learn within the area.


List of the 29 accredited driving schools is obtainable on the website of the commission, ditto other states in the country.


Ajenge, however, warned motorists to ensure that their vehicles were in good condition and should obey road traffic rules and regulations.


She also urged the public to always inform the commission and other relevant agencies ahead of their activities that might affect other road users in the territory.


This information, she said, would enable the commission to provide safety on the roads as well as direct residents of the area to make use of alternative routes, if necessary.
