The registration of cars and other transportation vehicles is a challenge in many west African countries. An mobile application that will allow every citizen who buys a new car to go through the car license plate application by indicating all information in a few minutes can overcome many disadvantages of the current registration systems, especially corruption and bribery. Putting these kinds of software in place will not only save time and money for government and users, but it will be much cheaper compared to travel and the usual waiting periods in front of the offices that take hours and hours of work or even days for some.
