Lagos State Gov Has Compulsory Physical Inspection Of All Vehicles Certificates In The State.

The Lagos State government has commenced the compulsory physical inspection of all vehicles before the issuance of road worthiness certificates in the state.

The new order took effect from January 1, 2022.
The state’s Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, had disclosed last Friday at a stakeholders’ meeting with all transport operators in Lagos that motorists would have to present their vehicles for physical inspection at any of the designated computerised vehicle inspection centres across the state before they would be issued a road worthiness certificate.
Oladeinde explained that the new policy was geared towards making the road safe for all users and in line with the THEMES agenda of the Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration.
He added that the new policy would void the hitherto practice where any motorists can procure road worthiness certificate without presenting the vehicle for proper checks.
According to him, the move is to further strengthen the safety of the roads by ensuring that all vehicles plying Lagos roads are road worthy.
“No one would be able to obtain road worthiness certificate anywhere in the state without the Vehicle Inspection Service (LACVIS) certifying such vehicles road worthy”, he said.
He said any motorists who failed to have his vehicle repaired within the grace period would have to process another road worthiness certificate to enjoy the 30 days grace.
Oladeinde said the meeting with the stakeholders was a forum to collate the suggestions or challenges that stakeholders feel might impede the success of the policy, assuring that their views would be presented to the governor for consideration and appropriate actions.
“I have taken down all your questions and observations and I want to assure you that I would present them to Mr Governor for appropriate action”, he said.
The commissioner stated further that if a vehicle passed the minimum safety standard of the computerised test, such vehicle would be issued the certificate, adding that anyone whose vehicle failed the tests would be given one month grace period within
