She said that she had to make a thread on the issue because a client of hers was stopped and had to call her.

Below are therefore the six different documents she listed:

1. Driver’s licence

She said that it is the first that would be asked for whenever a driver is stopped and the card’s expiry date is always checked.

This document, according to her, is issued by the Vehicle Inspection Office during one’s car registration among other papers.

She added that when one is buying a Nigerian used car, you need a photocopy of change of ownership form.

3. Insurance certificate

The lady revealed the document could be got with the sum of N5,000 from the National Insurance Corporation of Nigeria. She, however, advised Nigerians to get comprehensive insurance.

4. Certificate of roadworthiness

The document certifies that one’s vehicle is fit for the road. Its span is a year and is renewable afterwards.

5. Certificate of vehicle registration

This paper shows the vehicle is registered under Nigerian law. Like the certificate of roadworthiness, it is also renewed yearly.

"Lagosians need to understand it is not the job of LASTMA to stop you and check your car documents. LASTMA is strictly to control road traffic, that is their job and nothing else. I feel so sorry and angry when I see them pull over cars to check papers, like how and why."

@tj_egbeyemi said:

"Also ensure the car tyres aren't expired. Some of them check."

@Steven_Jesusman asked:

"What if you bought Nigeria used car, can you drive without change of ownership?"
