The Sector Commander FRSC Lagos Corps Commander Olusegun Ogungbemide has directed that all Motorcycles (Okada), Tricycles (Keke) and dispatch riders are to obtain the approved Nigeria Driver’s Licence Class A as this is the only legal document that conferred on a rider the right to ply the Nigerian road.

In a statement signed by Route Commander Olabisi Sonusi FRSC Public Education Officer, Ogungbemide said in response to the fall out of the meeting held with Lagos State Motor Vehicle Administration Agency (MVAA) where it was agreed that riders should get Class A category of driver’s licence.

He added that presently in Lagos there are over 23 Driver’s licence centres and 29 Workstations at different locations across the state, hence no excuse for failure to obtain the licence.
