“We are embarking on this assignment so that motorists will come to our office to collect their driving licences.

“We have no backlog of new driving licences in Lagos State. There are 56,767 licenses yet to be collected by their owners.

“We have sent SMS to their owners that their licences are ready for collection, but they ignored our messages,’’ the FRSC boss said.

The Lagos FRSC boss frowned at the attitude of some road users driving without valid licences saying that such licences remained the only certification to drive on the road.

According to him, the fine for a driver driving without a valid licence is 10, 000 naira and the offender must produce the licence within 24 hours.
