Applying for a driving license? Here’s what you need to know!

In Pakistan, most of the people don’t possess the legal permit, a driving license, to drive the vehicle on the road. People don’t even bother to get the driving license and authorities never severely crack down on people who use cars without driving license. This negligence by both the parties has caused serious traffic problems, sometimes resulting in a fatal crash leading to severe injuries and even deaths.

People don’t go to driving schools to properly learn how to drive on the roads and after that get a driving license from the authorities by passing the official driving test. In 2015-16, a total of 9100 traffic accidents occurred in Pakistan, and 4448 people were killed in these tragic accidents.

A driving license basically tells the competence of the driver i.e. his/her driving skills and vehicle he/she are allowed to drive. It is to be noted here that one reason people don’t opt for driving license is lack of information regarding how one can get a license.
