How to Register a New Car in Nigeria

- Allocation of Registration Number of New Vehicle Form
- Auto vehicle License Form

4. All the filled forms and attached documents are then forwarded to the police officer assigned to the licensing office for verification, by way of verification stamp and date indicated on the form.
5. The next step after the verification process is payment for a license plate which is done in the bank. The required amount is N50, 000. However, it is dependent on the type of plate you want.
6. After payment, you will be required to present your receipt and a plate number that is available will be issued to you. You will be given a Proof of Ownership Certificate Number, Proof of ownership Certificate, and a Vehicle Identification Tag (VIT).
