The Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) produced a total of 3,563,759 number plates for motor vehicles and motorcycles between 2020 and 2022. 

This is according to the recent National Bureau of Statistics (NBS) 2023 Social Statistics Report, which examined socio-economic developments in Nigeria during this period. 

The report showed that the FRSC produced number plates for motor vehicles totalling 2,161,782, compared to 1,066,377 for motorcycles over the three-year period. 

Specifically, the 2023 Social Statistics Report indicated that in 2020, the FRSC produced 653,330 number plates for motor vehicles, 767,927 in 2021, and 740,525 in 2022. 

For motorcycles, 335,600 number plates were produced in 2020, 386,249 in 2021, and 344,528 in 2022. 

When analysing the total number of number plates produced by the FRSC for both motor vehicles and motorcycles in each year, the report revealed that 988,930 number plates were produced in 2020, 1,154,176 in 2021, and 1,085,053 in 2022.

This data highlights that 2021 was the peak year for number plate production by the FRSC.

Additionally, the NBS 2023 Social Statistics Report provided detailed insight into the number of drivers’ licenses processed by the FRSC between 2020 and 2022. 

The report revealed that 534,496 drivers’ licenses were processed in 2020, 828,189 in 2021, and 1,007,948 in 2022. This data clearly indicates that 2022 saw the highest number of drivers’ licenses processed within the three-year period.  

Cumulatively, the total number of drivers’ licenses processed by the FRSC over these three years amounts to 2,370,633. 

The year-by-year data highlights a significant increase in both the production of number plates and the processing of drivers’ licenses, reflecting the growing vehicular activity and administrative efforts of the FRSC.
