DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF AN AUTOMATED MOTOR VEHICLE DRIVER’S LICENSING SYSTEM. (A CASE STUDY OF ENUGU MOTOR LICENSE OFFICE, ENUGU STATE; ABAKPA) NIKE)
The need and expected role of management practice is that workers should be free of bias, fraud and sabotage, if they are always dedicated to their routine jobs. This assumptions is based on the fact that every worker must be competent to achieve an excellent and efficient result.

The ministry by keeping rate of all necessary documents regarding each vehicle driving owner within the state. It is surprising that despite efforts to records of registered vehicle drivers owners by the state government, these records have been disappearance.

Unnecessary delays in attending to customers due to the manual processing of information and delays in going through heap of file in their achieve to get necessary information that will aid in present information processing. Lack of space in packing of file and register sometime these files are destroyed in order to make space for new ones. This lead to the destruction of vital information. Misappropriation of public and by the staff because of lack adequate means of fund management. Those misappropriation are inched by the error prone manual handling of the charge and accounting systems of this system.
Above reasons gave room to touts to operate in the premises of the establishment. They change extra money from customers whom are fed up with wastage cause by snail pace of operation in the office.
1.2 PURPOSE OF STUDY
The purpose of this study is to liap-frog chasm inherent in the existing manual system of processing through a computerized approach by designing and implementing a computerized motors vehicle drivers license system.

- Demonstrate the capabilities of computer technology.
- To eradicate the inherent problem encountered by the motor vehicle driving license office.
