The Lagos State Ministry of Transportation, through the Motor Vehicle Administration Agency (MVAA), on Thursday launched the newly designed Articulated and Allied Vehicle Number Plate (AVNP).
The Honourable Commissioner for Transportation, Dr. Frederic Oladeinde, who was represented by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry, Mr. Sewedo Oluseyi Whenu said that the development is to further prioritise safe motoring measures for crime detection on Lagos roads.
According to him, one of the major benefits of the initiative is the creation of a robust database for all articulated and heavy-duty vehicles, especially those that ply State roads.
Oladeinde disclosed that all new vehicles coming into the State through the Ports will be required to obtain the Temporary Vehicle Tag (TVT) to be issued by Motor Vehicle Administration Agency (MVAA) as a means of identification for yet-to-be-fully registered, newly-acquired vehicles pending full registration.
He maintained that the new Articulated Vehicle Number Plate (AVNP) scheme has been designed and simplified to engender user-friendly and seamless procedures for the issuance of the plates, assuring that the pricing regime for the plates is affordable.
