Abstract

Allocation of Driving Licensing in Nigeria in the past was done haphazardly and as a result drivers with poor driving culture were usually allocated driving license. This probably was followed by unprecedented wave of road traffic accidents with attendant human and material losses. In other to reduce these losses, the federal road safety commission at its inception introduced some measures to curb the issue of licensing. This work, in line with the technological trend proposed an automated licensing scheme to improve on the efficiency of the previous system. The system was tested with 50 applicants and the result presented.
