Commercial Drivers To Begin Compulsory Psychiatric Test - FRSC

THE Corps Marshal and Chief Executive of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), Mr Boboye Oyeyemi, has disclosed that compulsory psychiatric test will be introduced as part of requirements for certification of commercial drivers in Nigeria.
Oyeyemi made this known on Wednesday in Abuja, at a technical meeting with stakeholders on the proposed implementation of Speed Limiters by commercial vehicles effective June 1, 2015.
He said the Corps was also re-evaluating driver’s licence administration with proposal for re-introduction of psychiatric test for the commercial drivers.
“It is going to be compulsory because before you get your driver’s licence, we need to be sure that you are sane,” he said.
The technical session was held with representatives from the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON), National Automotive Council of Nigeria (NAC), Nigerian Society of Engineers, Federal University of Technology, Owerri, Imo State and FRSC, among others.
