Friday, 08 June, 2018/1.00pm/FRSC 

The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) was borne out of need to ameliorate the challenges posed by road traffic crashes in the country. It was established on 18 February, 1988 as the lead government agency on road safety matters. The FRSC (Establishment) Act, 2007 is the enabling statue for the Corps. 

Our vision is to eradicate road traffic crashes and create a safe monitoring environment for Nigerians. Our core values are; Transparency, Fairness, Timeliness and Service Orientation. 

One of the core mandates of the Federal Road Safety Corps as encapsulated in the Federal Road Safety Corps (Establishment) Act 2007 Section 10(3) is that of Educating drivers and motorists and other members of the public generally on the proper use of highways. 

In pursuit of the above mandate, the corps has been involved in the training and retraining of private, commercial and government drivers through its Road Transport Safety Standardization Certification Programme. The Road Transport Safety Standardization Scheme (RTSSS) is aimed at regulating the largely unregulated road transport system and reducing Road Traffic crash to its barest minimum while institutionalizing safety procedures in the road transport sector. 

Cardinal among the three (3) broad areas of this scheme is the issue of improved drivers training and Certification Programme. Thus for the remaining part of 2018, the programme is schedule to hold as follows:
