Earlier today, the Rawalpindi Traffic Police launched a digital system to apply for a driver’s license. A 1-window operation has been launched for the public to apply for a driver’s license. The department has ended the difficult process that required applicants to wait in long lines, carry multiple documents, fill out long application forms by hand, and visit various rooms within the building numerous times for different tests.
According to the details, with the latest paperless system, an applicant is required to bring only their original CNICs to the office. All the details of the applicant will be automatically recorded in the department’s fully computerized system against their CNIC. This infers that applicants will not have to undergo the above-mentioned application process.
As per the officials, this step has been taken on the directives of the Inspector General (IG) of the Punjab Police to guarantee maximum ease for the general public.
The use of a smartphone application called Rawalpindi Police Citizen Connect has also been launched by the department.
