Process for obtaining driving license to be completed from home

Road Transport and Bridges Minister Obaidul Quader on Tuesday said starting from tomorrow, those who apply for driving license could complete the entire process from home, except appearing for the mandatory driving test.

 

“But the applicants have to appear at the Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) office for a test including biometric purposes,” he said while talking to reporters after attending the 29th meeting of National Road Security Council (NRSC).

 

A first level pilot project under the Road Safety Programme proposed by the World Bank, involving Tk 4.80 crore, has been taken and already the Development Project Proforma (DPP) of the project was amended which will be sent to the Planning Commission soon, he said.

 

The purpose of the project is to reduce road accidents and loss caused by the accidents, increasing capability of the government organisations involved in ensuring road safety and achieving economic growth, he added.

 

The implementation duration of the project is December 2022 to November 2027.
