FRSC Set to Produce Single Drivers' Licence for Cyclists, Drivers

The sector commander, RS6.1, Rivers, Salisu Galadunci, said, “If you are a motorcycle and motor vehicle rider/driver, you will not need to process driver’s licence for the two separately. You will only process one that covers the two. So, it is going to be two licences in one card.”

The corps is also creating awareness for motorcycle riders to know that there are categories of driver’s licence, including driver’s licence for motorcycle riders.

He added, “I have come across so many people riding motorcycles, and if you ask them to produce their driver’s licences, they will just look at you. But we are creating awareness for them to know that there are categories of driver’s licence, and one of them is driver’s licence for motorcycle riders.”

The sector commander further said commercial motorcycle operators had identification codes/numbers in identification cards through their union and the state’s transport ministry.

In Akwa Ibom, sector commander Matthew Olonisaye explained that FRSC was committed to ensuring that all motorcycles operating in the state are registered and the riders licensed to reduce crime.

“No one is allowed under the law to operate any automobile without being licensed, and there are classes of licence for each category. For a motorcycle, a cyclist is expected to have a class ‘A’ driver’s licence,” Mr Olonisaye explained. “All automobiles must bear a registration number. It is just like a name of an individual. The number identifies the bike or the vehicle.”

Also speaking, FRSC’s spokesman for Cross River sector command, Mark Ajunta, said, “When we see any unlicensed motorcycle, we impound such until the owner gets the needed papers before it is released to him or her.”

Meanwhile, Delta sector commander Ibrahim Abubakar has said for a commercial motorcycle to operate in the state, the owner should obtain a rider’s licence or risk being impounded.

“FRSC mandates commercial motorcycle operators to register their vehicles, and likewise, they must obtain a rider’s licence. In 2019 we began the clampdown on all unregistered motorcycles and tricycles in the country,” said Mr Abubakar.
