Before we further explain how to check driving school certificate genuineness, please refer to our earlier post on how to How to check the authenticity of driving school certificate in Nigeria

It has gotten to our notice that most people don’t know our to check if the certificate they have been issued is genuine or if it can be used to process the new Nigeria drivers license.

Since the new process of getting a drivers license was introduced by the FRSC (Federal Road Safety Corps), all driving school company issued certificate WILL NO LONGER BE VALID to process a driving license, the certificate can just be treated as a certificate of participation. The only valid certificate is the one issued by your driving school from an FRSC portal which can be used to process your new driving license.

Sample of the FRSC Issue Certificate 

At this point you already know if the driving school has been authorized to operate. Now, to verify the certificate follow the steps below.

  1. Check the certificate for the certificate number just after your name as seen in the sample above
  2. Visit https://www.nigeriadriverslicence.org/new and follow the steps displayed in the picture below

This will display your information.

Note: Please do not attempt to adjust, edit or save any of your displayed information this should be done by FRSC special agent at the capturing center or by the approved driving school you enrolled through, this process is just to show the authentication of the certificate.

    Also, how long does it take to get the certificate?

    • administrator says:

      There’s no available means to check if you have been enrolled or even track the process until completed. Also, the days taken to process the certificate varies due to some unforeseen circumstances that may occur, but the standard processing days given by FRSC is 26 days.

      Thank you for reading!

    Hello admin., the name on my certificate is not orderly arranged. Instead of starting with my first name, middle name and last name, instead it is my middle, last and first.
    Is it Okay like that.

      Hi Luka

      The arrangements of name on the certificate is not nothing to worry about, when you get to the capture centre you can tell the officer incharge to help rearrange your names accordingly.

      Step 2: Attach your National Identification ID / The slip that reflect your date of birth

      If you don’t have the paper copy, you must have the certificate number. You will be unable to complete your biometric capture if any of these two items is missing. You might have to reapply.
