Something About Company
Kommon Sense School of Motoring is a driving school developed out of a need to provide easy access to driving training of international standard in Nigeria. Having considered the rate of mortality as a result of human errors due to a lack of proper driving education in Nigeria, Kommon sense school of Motoring seeks to start up a process of re-orientation for drivers, and driving trainers across Nigeria. Interestingly, we have also realised from our test tolls, that law enforcement agents as well as primary stakeholders in the road transport sector also lack proper road education.
We specialise in training individual and company drivers to drive in a defensive manner by being able to perceive hazards on time and take appropriate steps to avoid incidents or accidents. Drivers who attend our driver training programmes will become better, considerate and responsible drivers who will be able to explain the reasons behind any actions they take while driving.”

- Recognised and obey road signs
- Be able to perceive hazards on time and respond timely and appropriately.
- Drive safely and skilfully to reduce fuel consumption and wear and tear of the car.
- Respect and be considerate to other road users, thus contributing to road safety.
The course will also help drivers comply with Health and Safety regulations and increase employee’s skills.
The KSSM Difference
Our instructors are UK trained drivers who have developed a specialized curriculum using the British standard while incorporating Nigerian variables. We are not just a school, but a group of professionals who are concerned about the driving culture of Nigerians, which has resulted in the high rate of road traffic accidents and deaths. We therefore decided to set up a driving school of international standards.
Our lessons are designed to suit both educated and non-educated drivers in different languages and pidgin-English, bearing in mind that most Nigerian commercial drivers are not learned. Our Tests/Exams are equally tailored towards the individual. By these methods we intend to communicate the same message to every individual in the simplest and most relatable way possible.
Facts and Statistics
Statistics have shown that 6400 Nigerians lost their lives on our roads in 2013. This includes 4552 men, 1398 women, 299 boys, and 201 girls. More data from reports show that between 2009 and 2013, 30435 people were killed in road accidents in Nigeria (this is about the size of a European city e.g Hungary). In addition, 28480 men, 9198 women, 1520 boys and 859 girls, making a total of 40057 people were injured in road accidents in 2013. Out of 193 countries in the world, Nigeria is ranked to have the second highest rate of road accidents. This makes the most dangerous country in Africa, with 33.7 deaths to every 1,000 people. That means 1 in every 4 road-accident deaths occurs in Nigeria. (Adedokun, 2015)
Next to to the Boko Haram insurgency, road accident is the second highest source of violent deaths in Nigeria.
