Digital Driving License Kenya
Kenyan motorists have until July to get digital driving licence. Failure to
acquire the smart driving licence will see motorists attract instant fines.
This tough rule was one of the resolutions made by NTSA last week in Mombasa during a high-profile security meeting led by Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i.
In a 10-point plan for his ministry, Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i said he will concentrate on countering terrorism, police reforms, cleaning up the registry department,
introducing instant fines for traffic offences, fight radicalisation in universities and continue cleaning up the transport sector.
“The issuance of manual driving licences will be suspended by July 1. We are going to start trials on instant fines immediately and by July 1, we will go fully on the issue of fines as we cease issuing manual driving licences. We are migrating to digital and that’s the way forward,” Dr Matiang’i said.
At the same time, NTSA has asked motorists who have already applied for the smart driver’s license to go and collect them at the NTSA offices in Nairobi. The digital driving licence will cost you Sh. 3,050 and is valid for three years.
