Get your driver's license

Your Nigerian driver's license is easy to obtain from your local driver's license centre. Before uploading your document, make sure that it is a clear copy.

In order to stay on the road, we need your most up to date drivers license. You will receive notifications as your driver's license expiration date is close. You can update your driver's license through or through the driver app.
