The Federal Road Safety Corps has said the cost of driving licence remains N6,350 and does not expect any driver to pay more than the amount to obtain any licence whose expiry period is three years.
It said no price increase had been announced, adding that a five-year duration was only added to the three-year driving licence with a cost of N10,350 to give motorists a new option.
The Corps Marshal/Chief Executive Officer, FRSC, Mr. Boboye Oyeyemi, gave the indication while speaking at a workshop in Lagos and warned motorists not to patronise touts.
He described the action of driving with a fake driving licence as a serious offence.
“We have not increased the cost of processing the driving licence. It remains N6,350. What we have done is to give people the option of taking either for three years or five years. The five-year driving licence is available at N10,350,” he said.
Oyeyemi also said the corps would come hard on violators of speed limit, noting that accident rate attributed to the factor was on the increase.
