Procedure and Services Details of New Online Driving License System in Punjab

Attention, all prospective drivers in Punjab! Exciting innovations are underway to make your process of earning a driver’s license easier and more convenient. 

A new driver’s license program has been announced by the Punjab government, and it will go into effect throughout the province immediately.

The Motor Vehicles Rules 1969 have experienced substantial changes, notably in the driving test procedure. 

In a recent tweet, Lahore traffic police revealed a significant change: the e-sign exam, which is an important element of the driving test procedure, will now take place two weeks later.

It’s vital to note that passing the on-road exam is still necessary, and failing it will result in a 42-day delay before retaking both tests.

The on-road test entails demonstrating your driving abilities on a predetermined course. In the event of failure, take a deep breath and rest for 42 days. Meanwhile, the e-sign test neatly tests your theoretical knowledge over two weeks. Pass both examinations, and your driver’s license will be yours! 

 This change in the Motor Vehicle Rules is a great start toward making the licensing procedure easier for aspiring drivers in Punjab. It displays a desire to promote road safety and ensure that licensed drivers are competent and responsible.

The goal of the new system is to streamline and simplify the driver’s license application procedure. Licenses can be renewed by the updated fee schedule.
