to applygist.com to save car from FRSC carelessness.
I received this from a friend today and my discovery was interesting
and highly informing.
It was on the 14th day of March that I drove into one of the police
station to obtain the new tinted glass permit, in the process, it was
discovered that the plate number of my car is being used by another
car. My first question is "How is it possible?" Because I obtained
this number from FRSC with all documents intact. I never know the car
is going to stay for 12 days in the station.
A file was quickly open and the car became an exhibit. Thank God the
car was registered by a very high ranking officer of the FRSC whom was
brought to the station. As the investigation was going on, it was
discovered that some people were producing these fake and duplicate
number plates and giving out to innocent and unsuspicious Nigerian
ripping them off their hard earned money.
My question is, should we now go and buy this numbers at a shop in
Alaba or at idumota instead of the federal government approved
agencies? In the course of my research, I stumbled upon the number
plate verification system online. I started verifying cars of friends,
church members and even cars that I see on the road. A shocking
revelation was made that OUT OF EVERY 10 CARS you see on the road with
LAGOS and ABUJA number plates, that at least 4 is FAKE.
You can check your own now.
(1) Go to www.nvisng.org/numberplateverification.aspx
(2) Enter your number in the space provided. Eg "ABC863AP
(3) Click on verify button. Then an information will be displayed
below the button. Because FRSC did not want the general public to see
the full details of the registration, you will only see the name of
your car and the date of registration.
Here are some samples:
1. This number plate has been produced by FRSC and assigned to Toyota
highlander on 20/01/2015. If your car is Toyota highlander, then you
are lucky its done. But if your car is for instance Toyota Camry and
your verification shows the above message, then you are in as me.
Solution is to go and re-register your car afresh.
2. This number plate has been produced by FRSC and assigned to Matrix
however the vehicle is yet to be registered..... If your car is
Matrix, then just go back to the person that registered your car and
tell him/her to complete your registration.
3. This plate number has been produced by FRSC but yet to be assign
to any vehicle. It means that they just gave you a number plate that
is not even registered in their system. Solution is to go to them to
register your car and upload your information.
4. An invalid/wrong number plate. Do I need to explain this, NO.
Verify your car first and sort yourself out with the FRSC before you
even proceed to police for tinted permit cos if police are the one to
find out, then you know what follows. Many innocent Nigerian are
suffering now because of impunity in our institutions
Note: this verification is only applicable to the number plates with
this formats ABC123AB not AB123 ABC.
Let us spread this news until everyone is aware of this evil FRSC is
perpetrating. You are free to share.
Thank you and have a wonderful we
