Following special directions from Inspector General of Police (IGP) Dr. Usman Anwar, driver’s licence offices across Punjab have expedited the application procedure.
According to media reports, the department has eliminated the file system from the process of issuing driving licences. Applicants can now apply for a driver’s licence by showing their National Identity Cards (NICs).
Furthermore, the agency has permitted applicants to take driving exams in their personal vehicles. These measures were performed as part of the paperless driving licence issuance system to simplify and ease the process for candidates.
Service Available Around the Clock
The Punjab Police Department announced the commencement of a 24-hour driving licence service in six of the province’s most popular cities in February. Citizens will be able to receive licences in as little as 24 hours if these centres are open after office hours.
Driving test centres will be created in the province’s six major towns, according to DIG Traffic: Lahore, Gujranwala, Multan, Rawalpindi, Faisalabad, and Sialkot. He further indicated that these facilities will be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
