Aluta News

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has warned proprietors of driving schools Nasarawa State against sharp practices.

Corps Commander Lucia Samuel-Mhii, Nasarawa Sector Commander, gave warning while declaring open a  workshop for Proprietors and Instructors of driving schools on Wednesday in Lafia.

Samuel-Mhii said that the exercise was in compliance with the directive from the Training Department of FRSC Headquarters, Abuja,  to conduct mandatory training for owners of driving schools across the country.

She pointed out that operators of driving schools must ensure that applicants undergo full training before being given permission to go for practical test on the road and thereafter acquire drivers’ licence.

The sector commander maintained that on no account must applicants names  be uploaded into the system by proxy in their absence.

“Fellow the right channel because compromising the process will produce negative results and increase crashes on the highways,” she added.

She said that the current state of affairs on the road was a direct result of the actions or inactions of the driving schools.

“The drivers on the roads are products of these schools, and their contributions to either the reduction or increase in crashes should be a matter of concern.

“Pay close attention to the lectures and apply the knowledge gained to make our highways safer for all road users,”she said.

In his remarks, Mr Sunday Egwu, acting Chairman, Nasarawa State Driving Schools Association of Nigeria, appreciated FRSC for workshop, saying  the exercise was apt.

He, therefore, promised on behalf of others to implement the lessons learnt at the workshop with a view to producing qualified and certified drivers.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that 22 out of the 45 driving schools across  the state participated in  the training.
