The Directorate of the Lagos Vehicle Inspection Service (VIS) led by Engineer Abdul-Hafeez Gbolahan Toriola has allayed fears of motorists in Lagos over rumors of price increase for the issuance of Road Worthiness Certificate.
In a statement released in Lagos, the Director of the VIS described the rumors as unfounded and without any substance. He reiterated the stance of the Lagos State Government to ensure that Lagosians are able to process their Road Worthiness Certificate (RWC) seamlessly.
He stated that in spite of the fact that the Lagos State Government has invested substantially in establishing ten computerized centres across, the government is not considering increasing the price for the processing of Road Worthiness Certificate.
The Director enjoined motorists wishing to process their RWC to shun touts and visit any of the 45 VIS work stations or the ten Lagos Computerised Vehicle Inspection Service (LACVIS) centres.
According to the Director, motorists who process their RWC in VIS Zonal offices without a computerized centre are to visit any of the ten LACVIS centres across Lagos with their referral note for a free computerized inspection.
He stated that after the inspection, they will be issued an Inspection Report.
He assured motorists that officers of VIS and LACVIS have been trained and positioned to attend to customers’ enquiries and concerns in a professional manner.

The Director equally stated that the Computerized Vehicle Inspection will also help vehicle buyers from buying imported vehicles with mechanical faults which are usually hidden by unscrupulous sellers.
According to him, a valid safety check is required before a vehicle can be registered. These tests which include the Autovin, are carried out at the LACVIS centres to know the history of the vehicle and all the modifications and alterations done on the vehicle, if any.
He also called on all insurance companies, vehicle documents processing agencies, car dealers/ importers and all safety agencies to cooperate with the government to actualize the aims and objectives of the state government to ensure total safety on the roads by insisting that the Autovin exercise is carried out before vehicle purchase and registration is completed.
