The Project File Details
The traditional approach to Vehicle licensing in Nigeria has been a very manual method in Nigeria in the sense that the payment and delivery is manual. Although this method is easy and understandable, it poses problems on the long run because users are always expected to travel long distances from wherever they live to the license station in order to make payments and obtain Vehicle licenses, it is also observed that record keeping is largely manual and subject to disorganization and irreparable loss of data. Because of this, the design and implementation of a Web-based Vehicle Licensing System aims to reduce the number of time-consuming processes involved in obtaining Vehicle licenses, provide secure and cost effective methods of storing and maintaining user data and improve the working experience of both staff and Vehicle users. The methodology used in this project is Structured System Analysis and Design Methodology, the programming languages used in the design of this project are HTML (Hyper-text Markup Language), PHP (Hyper-text Preprocessor), CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) and SQL (Structured Query Language).

Vehicle Registration in Nigeria began over 100 years ago and the records have been essentially manual which in turn has not help to raise the efficiency of general automotive services in recent years. Today, computer has been discovered as a very efficient instrument, which has played a very significant role in adequate management of information. Besides, it has played more roles in the country. However, computerization has helped in many areas of life and due to the great number of vehicle owners, the thought of computerization of this operation becomes of great important in order to wipe out the manual data processing system from which many problem have originated. The problems, which have engulfed the objectives of motor vehicles registration, are extensively discussed in this project together with the new method that was innovated. This work is conducted towards the computerization of the various problems in processing data in order to identify the various problems that are been encountered in the registration of vehicles manually. This theory also compares the existing system with the new system, which is exact, and a faster way of processing data and the problem faced by customers when they are registering their vehicles. There are different programming languages that can be used to develop such programs, PASCAL, JAVA (Just Another Vague Acronym), VISUAL BASIC, and C++ (
C Object-Oriented Programming Language) etc. But the researcher will be making use of PHP, Database (MySQL) they are both working with Apache server (XAMPP).
The World is experiencing an information knowledge revolution that is fundamentally transforming the way in which human activities are carried out. Governments worldwide are adopting e -government as a means of improving their services to businesses and citizens, promoting economic and social development, and enhancing the effectiveness and efficiency of government operations.
Computer plays vital role in the development of any company it also saves some of its complex problems that are been faced by man and processes voluminous data within a short period of time or at an incredible speed. Recent emphasis on information and data processing in most of our business has grown adversely as in the case of motor vehicle license and plate registration. In as much as motor vehicle registration has been in existent for ages now, the old system of registration has been in adoption which did not play a significant role on highway safety until the development of the new system of vehicle registration where a reflective sheeting which is more visible to read even in the dark. This new system of motor vehicle and plate number registration, which is the main focus of this project, came into existent on the 19th March 1997 and handled by the motor licensing officer. It was introduced to enforce strict compliance to traffic rules and regulation as well as providing a proper data as to the behaviour of road users. Thus the role this study is going to play is to computerize the motor vehicle and plate number registration thereby bringing about more efficiency, effectiveness and improved competence.
Motor licensing office Abuja only focuses on vehicle registration and inspection, and not on other supporting services such as vehicle tracking, learner’s driving permission, and drivers’ license management, monitoring of drivers and vehicles operations and documentation of both accident and crime report.
Vehicle registration in the city, state, and district offices burdened applicants by requiring them to personally deliver the certified copy of resident’s registration and other documents.
Vehicle Registration used to involve manual recording of vehicle’s information which ranges from cars to buses and later to trucks and heavy duty equipment on ledgers and tracking other related information such as registration, road worthiness test certificates, change of ownership, engine and chassis numbers; and expiration of road license. This process has been extremely inefficient and the recovery of the information was not possible once ledgers were damaged or lost as it frequently occurs.
These are the problems that are being encountered in the manual system of assigning a plate number to newly acquired vehicle in the department of vehicle licensing and registration, (Licensing office Abuja). The limited factors listed below have slowed realization of the good intention:
As we have seen from the statement of the problems, the things that stand as puzzle in the manual system of motor vehicle registration aim at introducing a better system which is the computerized system which will contribute in providing solution to the problems.
Due to the constant rise in technology, it is necessary to use computer to Process voluminous data within a short period of time or at an incredible speed. This project is to help provide efficiency, effectiveness and improve competence issuance of vehicle license, plate number and other related activities. The importance of this study includes:
