Thank you so much. What a relief to hear this. Infact plus 1 for you.






There is ALWAYS a better way with God.
I would advise that you do all you can to collect the renewed license before you leave. My husband's temporary license was which extended to September (though handwritten and stamped behind it) was not accepted here. We are in Ontario, I don't know if other provinces are also like that.

I am still doing all within my capacity to obtain the DL however if it fails, I will opt for plan B, which is courier of the permanent DL to me while trying to use the temporary one in Canada . I hope it fly as tbaba affirmed.

Hello people. Trust everyone is doing fine.

Please I need help/advice.My driver's license expired in February and I applied for renewal since and my husband's expired May.As at when we left in July our temporary licenses had been extended twice with promise that renewed licenses will be out in a month and were continually told there was a system upgrade in FRSC abuja which delayed production of renewed licenses.The story was still the same as at last Friday. We notwithstanding applied for a letter from the Nigerian embassy (or whatever it is) in Ontario which they stated on it that old licenses were expired and refused to state we applied since for renewal and the delay in receipt is no fault of ours. Anyways long story cut short after standing for almost 5hrs at the test centre where we went for the test yesterday, we were told our naija driving experiences of over 10years will not count until we produce the renewed licenses or we will have to follow the Canadian graduated system like new drivers. That will mean looking for a G driver to always sit with us when driving for the next 3 years or so. We opted to bring our renewed licenses and left the center. Someone just told us today again that if it exceeds 60 days after arrival in ontario, we will have to start from the scratch as new drivers. Meaning we have less than 2 weeks to sort this issue out.

Am in a state of confusion. What can we do?

Thanks
I'll advice you obtain the license from another state, or you get a one year international drivers license. I have a friend who works with FRSC in lagos. You can send me a PM for his number, he should be able to assist.

Hi, I landed Ontario about same time as you did with similar licensing issues. But when i took the letter i got from the Nigerian High Commission to the drive test centre, it was accepted. If you still get the rejection from them, insist, go another day or try another drive test centre within the province.

Hi. The letter is to authenticate the license stating date of issue, expiry date, license number, years of driving and if you have a clean driving record without any suspension. You will send your letter of request to info@frsc.gov.ng
