Retraining drivers for safety.

Welcome to LASDRI - Lagos State Drivers' Institute

... retraining drivers for safety.

Many lives are lost daily in road traffic accidents in Nigeria, school pupils and college undergraduates that are the hopes of many parents have been killed prematurely. The list is endless and the pains are deeply unforgettable.  The socio economic costs of this avoidable waste are immense and priceless. Hopes of families have been shattered from the loss of their breadwinners. The pains of widowhood are always everlasting to many. Business empires have collapsed from the death of founder or leadership.

Current Situation

The  situation where practical tests are administered on learner drivers before they are issued drivers licenses are gone. People now obtain National Drivers’ Licenses without formal tests. Drivers in Nigeria, with Lagos having the highest percentage of estimated 26.4 % of the national figure:
