Some vehicle owners or drivers don't know that there are established laws guiding the display of current vehicle license. The laws can be found in Section 26, NRTR 2012 of Nigeria.

What Section 26 Of NRTR Says

 26.—(1) The owner, driver or person in charge or control of a vehicle shall at all times when the vehicle is being used on any public road keep the current licence of the vehicle displayed in the manner hereinafter provided, and shall, on demand, permit any appropriate authority to examine the licence.     

(2) Licences, other than trade licences, shall be displayed in a weather- proof holder with a transparent cover and carried on the vehicle and in the case of—

(a)    motorcycles or trailers, in a conspicuous position on the near side of the vehicle not more than 76.20 centimetres from the front of the motorcycle or trailer ;  
(b)    motorcycles with side car, on the near side of the handle bar of the cycle or the near side of the side car ;
