The Federal Road Safety Corps, FRSC, on Monday said that it would clamp down on motorists with either fake or expired driver’s licence.The Unit Commander of the corps, Mr Philip Ozonnandi, stated this to newsmen in Ore, Ondo State.
He pointed out that despite the numerous announcements made by the FRSC concerning expired or fake licence, most drivers still patronise touts, who issue fake driver’s licence.
Ozonnandi said that the FRSC collaborated with Vehicle Inspection Office, VIO, and Board of Internal Revenue, BIR, to ensure that securing of licence is made easy for all motorists.
“In spite of all our efforts to make driver’s licence easily accessible to motorists nationwide, many still patronise touts, even at exorbitant rate to get fake licence.
“Driving with fake or expired licence is a criminal offence. We are set to begin enforcement on fake licence and any erring motorist will face the wrath of the law,’’ Ozonnandi said.
Ozonnandi also urged motorists to visit FRSC Driver’s Licence Centres (DLC) to follow all laid-down procedures for their authentic licence to be issued.
