FRSC Tasks Commands On DSSP Web Portal


All sector commands
of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC), have been directed to commence full utilization of  the revamped  Driving Schools  Standardisatin Programme (DSSP) web portal online application of driving schools operators, and instructors nationwide.
The sector Head of Training Standards and Certification (TSC), of FRSC, Rivers Command, Joel  Odewoye dropped the hint during a stakeholders forum on DSSP on-line web Application Portal  held at the corps  conference hall, Aba  Road Port Harcourt recently.
Odewoye   opined that the DSSP is an initiation of the corps which  specifies the minimum  operational  standards, adding that its mandate is to eradicate road traffic crashe by ensuring that all motorists and road users are properly trained.
He noted with  dismay that in recent times  some driving schools had  been operating illegal while others initially approved  by the FRSC have  gone below standards, thereby compromising on the  minimum operational  requirements.
According to him, the activities of these driving schools if not checked  would  churn out half-baked drivers that will contribute to the daily road crashes,  stressing that such would no longer be  acceptable as it is against the spirit of DSSP.
Odewoye expressed worry that the activities of the illegal driving schools  that does  not meet the minimum standards still lingered on despite all efforts by the corps to curb the anomalies, and explained that the  DSSP on-line portal scope include  update driving school profile, enroll trainee drivers, update training hours and generate certificate.
He advised the stakeholders to update their vehicles and instructors, fill forms for physical inspection of their  driving schools that would be conducted and countersigned by officers for final upgrade. He enjoined  all to ensure strict compliance inorder to ensure that both  the vehicles and their instructors are available during the inspection.
