Punjab for the first time introduces paperless/digital driving license

By Matthias Samuel

The technology is evolving day by day, and Pakistan is not far behind in it. The government of Punjab has introduced a ‘Digital Driving License’ system for the first time in Pakistan.

This will ensure a new any easy way to get a driving license instead of filling and going through long complex paperwork, now the driving license will be issued through the new digital driving license system by only using the Identity Cards (ID).

The system has been introduced in collaboration with Punjab Information Technology Board and Police Officer Rawalpindi.

In order to get one the citizens of Punjab will only have to submit their national identity card and bank challan, in addition to which they will not need any documents, which will prove to be fruitful as it might as well help in putting a stop in corruption in this particular department.

As far as the people with expired license are concerned, with this new system they will also be able to get their licenses back through this digital platform.

This system will also ensure social distancing in this pandemic situation so it sure is a small yet wise step taken by the government and it is important to state that before this system people had to wait in the never ending long lines to get their driving license and on top of that the process took months and excessive documentation and extra payments to some corrupt officials which made the job even hard for a common man.
