Director, Vehicle Inspection Service, (VIS) Engr. Akin-George Fashola who stated this during an interview session on a radio programme, appealed to vehicle owners in the state to visit vehicle inspection centers spread across the state with their vehicles for periodic inspection adding that the cost of inspection is already inclusive in the total package they paid for renewal of vehicle particulars. He said, “We are appealing to car owners in the state to come forward with their vehicles as the cost is already inclusive in the total package they paid for the renewal of vehicle particulars. He disclosed that the old policy of issuing a roadworthiness certificate and then expecting the vehicle owners to come and present their vehicle for inspection within 30 days is no longer sustainable as most vehicle owners do not bring their vehicles for the said inspection once the certificate is issued. He said such policy development often required series of steps to achieve the desired result as well as satisfy the aspirations of all critical stakeholders that would directly and indirectly be affected by its operation. The Director explained further that, “The referral note that we give when you come to us is just for a grace period that covers 30 days in which we expect you to have checked and fixed the vehicle. “The referral note that we give when you come to us is just for a grace period that covers 30 days in which we expect you to have checked and fixed the vehicle. The referral note is not an automatic clearance”. Until his promotion to Major General and new appointment, Akpor was the Director, Directorate of Military Training (DMT).

ADVERTISEMENT Fashola pointed out that the vehicle inspection service centers are ramping up capacity to accommodate more vehicles at the 27 fully-equipped centres adding that 30 additional centers are underway to cover up the 57 Local Governments and Local Council Development Areas of Lagos State.” Fashola added that vehicle owners could have their automobiles inspected in any area of the state. He said the draft policy would support the implementation of the National Agricultural Technology and Innovation Plan (NATIP) and provide a defined direction for the country’s dairy industry where all players at whatever level would be expected to abide by rules of operation, in terms of production, processing and marketing of dairy products. He added that a mobile testing centre is also available within the state for companies and owners of large fleets of vehicles. “You can go to any centre within the length and breadth of the state.

Even if you do your first inspection on the mainland and you had to do your second inspection on the Island, you have no problem because they are all connected up’’, Fashola said While commending motorists for their quick responses as recorded in the number of vehicle inspection conducted between January 4 and January 7, this year which recorded 388 at Ojodu center, compared to what was obtainable before the January 1, 2022 commencement date of the policy, he solicited for more turnouts from motorists.
