Federal Road Safety Recruitment Portal Process & Application Form 2024/2025 (My Experience)

You are going to come across a lot of misleading information about this year’s FRSC recruitment but this is the best information you’ll find based on real experience. First of all, the FRSC website is frsc.gov.ng, and the recruitment for 2024/2025 takes place on this site. FRSC stands for Federal Road Safety Corps. I will eventually share the direct URL where we have been registering for this federal job for years now.

Some of us applicants just want to apply for a job without even checking the eligibility. However, for this job, you have to be an interested and qualified applicant. If you consider yourself in this category, then you are invited to apply for the ongoing FRSC recruitment for the 2024/2025 intake.

What is the FRSC by the Way?

From the meaning of this acronym, you can tell that it is a federal agency. FRSC is one of the Nigerian Federal Paramilitary bodies. The job of an FRSC official is to prevent or minimize accidents on the highway. It is your duty as a member to remove obstructions on any part of the highways and educate drivers, motorists, and other members of the public. This is just an overview of the job description.

General Eligibility Requirements for FRSC Recruitment 2023/2024

There are many conflicting eligibility requirements out there. This is the correct one that we had to meet before applying for this job, and it is according to the FRSC guidebook:

  • The applicant must be a Nigerian citizen
  • Interested candidates must have good communication skills
  • Not less than 1.63 meters for females and 1.68 meters for males in height
  • Have a minimum of five credits in no more than two sittings in the West African Senior School Certificate (WASSCE), National Examination Council (NECO), and General Certificate of Education (GCE). Credit in English is compulsory
  • HND, B.Sc, NCE, or an OND certificate in any related field, and from a recognized university
  • A valid means of identification such as a valid driver’s license, national identification card, international passport, or voters card
  • Must be between the ages of 18 to 30 years
  • Have a good knowledge of computer (an added advantage for you)
  • Must be willing to work in a new environment
  • Applicants must be physically, and mentally fit for paramilitary activities
  • If an applicant is a drivers or rider, must have the appropriate class of valid driver’s licence
  • Must not have tattoos
  • Must not be a pregnant, married woman at the time of application

Here are 10 important requirements you must meet before you apply for this FRSC job.

Please… Take Note of the Following

  • FRSC recruitment is free. Do not pay a fee to anyone
  • Shortlisted applicants will be required to undergo a drug test with the NDLEA (National Drug Law Enforcement Agency)
  • Shortlisted applicants will also required to take a computer-based examination conducted by JAMB (Joint Admissions and Matriculation Board)

One more important thing expected of you after you fulfill all these criteria is to be of good behavior and composure. FRSC is a strict organization with no room for bad behavior.

FRSC Application Process

  • Go to recruitment.frsc.gov.ng
  • Register with your correct information
  • Sign in to your account after successful opening an account
  • Tap the Menu button (☰)
  • From the list, tap Application
  • Click Apply and submit all your information

After application, if you wish to go through your information again, follow the same steps. However, this time, after you click Application, select My Applications to show your information

Note that the FRSC application will require two referees from you. You’ll also have to upload your passport

Is It Ongoing?

This is an important question. You’ll find a lot of publications claiming that this recruitment exercise is ongoing, whereas it isn’t. Usually, the FRSC announces when the portal will be open. Without any official announcement, it’s not open. However, depending on when you find this guide, it may or may not be open. The solution is to try opening the portal URL given above. If the portal is active for this year’s FRSC recruitment, this URL will be accessible.

Unlike some of the federal agencies in Nigeria that I’ve seen, FRSC’s application form portal is usually unreachable when recruitment is not on. For others, the portal will remain open but you will meet a notification like “Sorry, the portal is currently closed”. Hopefully, the agency will consider this method in the future to help curious candidates. It will also protect potential applicants from registering on fake websites.

Is this Federal Job by Connection?

All federal jobs by default are open to the general public. Therefore, everyone is often invited to apply. However, while this is true, it’s also common for some people to get this job through connections. There are rumors that some applicants pay for slots in Nigerian recruitment agencies to secure a job. You should also know that a lot of people have lost their money due to their plugs failing to deliver. So, it’s not a guarantee if you take this route. 

The system is built to accept applications from different applicants, and then shortlist those who qualify. Hopefully, if your application is eligible and you have a strong background, you should become one of the shortlisted candidates when the list is out.

I made a post about how you can get a federal job, so make sure you read the wisdom in that article.
