Vehicle Inspection Office VIO Abuja: Contact Details Address.

Some people are ignorant of the meaning and duties of VIO or VIS which causes them to argue ignorantly or land them in big case.

On 1st January 1949, the Road Traffic Act was promulgated which is available to the Road Traffic Act chapter 548 Laws of the Federation of Nigeria (1990). It is this Act (1949) that gave birth to VIO.

They are called VIO (Vehicle Inspection Officers) and they work with VIS (Vehicle Inspection Service) which is a Directorate under the Ministry of Transportation.

Before 1939 vehicle inspection was carried out by the Directorate of Works, while Motor Licensing was supervised by the Motor Licensing officer under finance.

The establishment was a product of the 1980 International Treaty on the Harmonization of Highways legislations in the ECOWAS Sub-region signed by the Authority of Heads of State and Government.
