The Federal Road Safety Corps has urged Nigerians who wish to renew their drivers license to use the Bypass capture scheme of the process and desist from going to the drivers’ license centres for renewal.
In a statement signed by the Corps Public Education Officer, Bisi Kazeem, FRSC introduced the Bypass Capture functionality on the National Drivers License (NDL) to improve the ease of obtaining the license and save applicants time on waiting for capture.
Kazeem also noted that an applicant for Bypass capture will simply make payment online and visit the collection centre to pick up the permanent license when it is ready. There is no need to visit any Drivers License Centre (DLC) to recapture his/her biometric information.
The Bypass capture is only available to applicants who have existing biometric information on the NDL system i.e. such an applicant must have gone through the FRSC Driver’s License process and have their biometric capture at any of the FRSC DLC.
He added that an applicant can only apply for Bypass capture for the first license renewal which is after three (3) or five (5) years. The second renewal (which will be after a minimum of six (6) years, will require an applicant to recapture his biometrics.
