Driving license in a week
So far and presently, Nepalese have to wait for months and even years to lay their hands on the official driving license. To make the process faster and more efficient, the government is buying a new printer to print driving licenses.
After buying a machine, two machines will be in place to print driving licenses which will remarkably shorten the duration of getting a license for the public. The government has announced a bid for the machine. Don’t miss: Kathmandu Metro Traffic won’t accept driver’s licenses on the Nagarik App, why?
The entire process could take 5-6 months. The department is amending prevailing regulations to make the said changes. So far, the department issues a probationary license for a year after passing the trial and a temporary one afterward.
The government has been making a series of measures to make license grants more feasible such as the 70-marks policy in trials to faster issuance of the license. If it goes to plan, the public will be greatly benefitted.
