Design and Implementation of Commercial Vehicle Registration and Task Management System in a Campus


Every new registration for a commercial vehicle necessitates this exercise, which calls for accurate data entry. The development of e-data processing systems offers a solution to the need for tools and different approaches to enhance people’s activities and well-being. The development of a campus commercial vehicle is being done in this work. The goal of the registration and tax management system is to examine the registration process for commercial vehicles on the Unizik campus, identify its shortcomings, and develop a system that will use computerization to improve driver registration and authentication as well as provide evidence of the legal ownership of any vehicles used on campus. Additionally, this system offers a reliable method of managing the vehicle owners’ recurring tax payments.



1.1 Background of the Study

The development of e-data processing systems is a response to man’s urgent need for tools and additional methods to enhance his general well-being and activities. It has freed employees from the demanding routine of data collection, management, and organization.

In order to record information about commercial vehicles and create a special personal identification number (PIN) for each vehicle, Nnamdi Azikiwe University (NAU) campus commercial vehicle registration uses pen and paper. The assignment of a unique identification number to multiple vehicles and the tracking of other relevant information, such as ownership changes and license renewals, make this process rife with errors. Any vehicle used for business purposes both inside and outside the school must comply with this.

The traditional system of using pen and paper for accreditation and registration has been weighed down with stress, according to the secretary of the Directorate of Transport Nnamdi Azikiwe University, and a proposal to automate these processes will be worthwhile.

Taxation is the means by which a government raises money and pays for its expenses. This is relevant at Nnamdi Azikiwe University’s Directorate of Transport (DOT), which is part of the Student Union Government (SUG), and levies a particular fee on trucks that operate on campus.

These commercial vehicles are subject to a daily tax that goes by various names, including “welfare,” “DOT dues,” “chairman,” and so forth. To make sure that drivers comply, a ticketing system is employed. However, it might be challenging for the directorate of transportation

1.2            Statement of the Problem

Every new registration for a commercial vehicle necessitates this exercise, which calls for accurate data entry. As a result, using this approach leads to a lot of issues, such as:

a. Registration conflicts brought on by giving different vehicles the same identification number.

b. Information retrieval is challenging due to the volume of registration papers taking up a lot of room.

c. The Student Union Government’s loss of revenue as a result of some fictitious DOT officials issuing gullible drivers with fake registration papers.

d. The time lost by manually determining whether a commercial vehicle is legitimate.

1.3 Aims and Objectives of the Study 

Designing and implementing a commercial vehicle registration and tax management system is the study’s proposed goal.

for campus of Unizik. The following goals will be accomplished by the system;

1. Offer a better, simpler, and more effective way to register vehicles.

2. To create a system that is ideal for creating and assigning an endlessly unique identification number to vehicles.

3. Create a precise and trustworthy database of commercial vehicle ownership for both new and used vehicle registration.

4. To make it simple for DOT officials in the field to confirm the legitimacy of any commercial vehicle entering the campus.

5. To offer a system of information for handling the daily tax on commercial vehicles

1.4 Scope of the Study

This study examines commercial vehicle registration and daily taxing or ticketing as they are available at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University in Awka’s Directorate of Transport (DOT). The work will automate how owners of commercial vehicles register their vehicles and pay their daily taxes.

1.5 Significance of the Study

The directorate of transportation will implement a campus commercial vehicle registration coupled with a ticketing system for efficient tax management. Campus of Unizik will:

a. Provide confidentiality by preventing double registration and provide helpful data to keep track of each registration that has been successfully completed.

b. Ensure integrity by preventing unauthorized users from secretly altering data.

Because the system will produce a report on the taxes/tickets paid for on a regular basis, it will also provide a basis for accurate auditing of the tax account.

1.6 Limitations of the Study

During the course of this work, we ran into some difficulties. among which are

Costly internet subscriptions and

b. Limited access to the DOT division to obtain pertinent information
