Accident statistics based on reported records show that the rate of accidents has been on the rise in recent times. One major reason for this high rate of road accidents is the poor driving culture. As most drivers do not train with driving schools before starting to drive, they have little or no understanding of road signs and acceptable driving procedures. Off all the factors that contribute to road crashes and accidents, human factor is considered to be the main causative factor. Nationally, the summary of the road traffic accidents (2005 to 2009) obtained in March 2010 from the Department of Policy, Research and Statistics of FRSC are as follows:

New drivers need to be made aware of the correct attitude and approach from day one of their driving careers. The development of driving as a skill for life should be instilled.
According to available statistic, the current volume of traffic in Nigeria is expected to rise from 8 million to 40 million vehicles on the nation's roads by the year 2020 if Nigeria becomes one of the leading economies. The challenges of managing the attendant traffic gridlock and attending to the consequential road crashes following the increased motorisation, makes it imperative to plan ahead. One of the ways to help manage the situation is putting in place well tested driver training and testing regime. With our experience of training drivers in the United Kingdom, we have requisite expertise in training, retraining, assessing and testing of drivers. Our aim is to provide the best there is in training of drivers.
