[GUIDE] Learn how to get ‘Computerized Driving License’ in Lahore
This will end long queues for multiple hours to obtain or renew the driving license.
Recently, Chief Traffic Officer (CTO) Lahore Captain (r) Hammad Abid shared that the Lahore Traffic Police have upgraded the Driving Licensing system. According to reports, citizens can now easily acquire a license via a Computerized Driving License system. Talking to the media, the CTO said:
The new system would make the whole process very quick. This will end long queues for multiple hours to obtain or renew the driving license.
He further added:
We have three centers in Lahore; one is in Manawaan, the second is in Arfa Karim Tower, while the third one is in DHA Lahore. The police have upgraded the DHA center with the help of PITB, and now the whole process is digitalized.
How can you obtain a license via the new Computerized Driving License system?
As per the Lahore Traffic Police, there are two phases of acquiring a driving license. Here is how a candidate can obtain a driving license:
- The center will allot a token number to the candidate.
- The candidate must visit the center as per the token number for a picture.
- The candidate must sit for a computerized multiple-choice and theoretical test.
- The candidate must take an on-road Driving Test.
- After passing the test, the candidate would get his/her new Driving License.
- If the candidate fails the test, he/she could retake the test after 42 days.
While talking about the process, the CTO said:
Earlier the test was manual and challenging, but now the police have made it very easy so that more and more people earn their licenses. The applicant only has to obtain 50% marks in the computerized test.
The officials praised the new licensing system and said:
The test would end the ‘VIP culture’ as there will be no line or wait. Also, the computer would give the numbers on merit, and no one can change the result, hence, a transparent system.
The officials further added:
It would be easier now to get a driving license. In short, a great initiative by Lahore Traffic Police.
