How does the Ntsa New Driving Licence look like?
These New Smart card DL have been upgraded and are fitted with a chip, much like ATM cards that hold drivers’ information and a points system that is used to discipline drivers each card has 100 points and points are deducted when traffic offenses are committed. If the driver reaches the threshold of 40 points, the license will automatically be canceled.
What happens if the Licence is canceled?
The driver can only re-apply after six months, a regulation that amounts to suspension. The points system is used in countries including the UK, Australia, and Germany. The New smart DL also seeks to eliminate fraud in the acquisition of a driver’s license by preventing the development of fake documents from the back streets. The new smart card costs Ksh3,000 which will be valid for 3 years. After three years the holders of Ntsa New Driving Licence holders will apply again for new permits.
The new generation driving license promises to revolutionize how we approach driving and it is hoped that it will also have a positive effect on driver behavior.
