The Lagos State Government has announced plans to commence its newly introduced online vehicle licence renewal with effect from August 1, 2021.
This was contained in a statement issued on Wednesday, July 28, by the General Manager of the Motor Vehicle Administration Agency (MVAA) Mrs Lape Kilanko, during a stakeholders’ meeting at Alausa, Ikeja.
The Lagos Government also noted that the newly introduced vehicle registration portal via https: portal.autoreg.ng is to allow individuals to renew their vehicle licences from the comfort of their homes.
Kilanko disclosed that the concept is part of the agency’s efforts; at enhancing service delivery in the area of vehicle documentation in Lagos State.
The MVAA Manager explained that the hitherto common practice of visiting MVAA stations; before renewal of vehicle licence could be done will soon be a thing of the past; also stressing that with the laudable innovation, the vehicle information is secured as only the details supplied by the vehicle owner will be updated on the page.
She said, “The platform is easy to use for vehicle owners as all they need to do is Sign up, Enter their vehicle licence number, login, Initiate Renewal, and Make Payment. They will receive SMS/email notifications while awaiting the delivery of the customized Vehicle Licence via an approved logistics/delivery courier.
“In the alternative, they can approach the nearest MVAA station to print the customised Vehicle Licence; by showing their SMS/Email notifications.’’
“The General Manager added that the process is a seamless one that requires little effort and implored Lagosians; especially drivers and vehicle owners, not to wait; until they are apprehended by law enforcement agents before renewing their documents.
“The Motor Vehicle Administration Agency is the Lagos State Government’s robust initiative; structured to realize the huge potentials of modernized vehicle licensing and registration machinery; for the attainment of socio-economic development and the security of life and property.”
MVAA was established in April 2007, a sequel to an enabling law No. 20; passed by the Lagos State House of Assembly.
The MVAA has as its primary mandate, the formulation of a sustainable policy direction on motor vehicle documentation; and other related matters
