Complete list of permits and licenses for delivery riders

Every business owner knows the importance of adhering to the rules and policies set by the government to regulate commercial activities.

What’s even more important is to always have all the requirements and certifications from the government in order to avoid being prosecuted or shut down.

As a reputable delivery company in Nigeria, we know how important it is to be in the government’s good books and we have decided to let you know what documents you must possess as a dispatch rider in order to prevent the police and other authorities from impounding your bike.
