DoTM Brings Driving License Test Results And Smart Card Print Status On Mobile
Department of Transport Management (DoTM), the government body that issues driving licenses, has initiated a new system to inform the people about the results of their driving license test and information on smart card print status through SMS.

Lawanya Kumar Dhakal, Director General of DoTM, and Arvind Sah, Managing Director of Sparrow SMS signed an agreement recently amid a ceremony organized at DoTM head office in Minbhawan, Kathmandu and jointly launched the system.

Inaugurating the system, Dhakal expressed confidence that use of ICT will be very effective in informing license aspirants about the test results and license print status.

DoTM had begun distribution of smart driving licence from December 2015. Unlike conventional driving licenses, these digital driving licenses incorporate electronic chips similar to SIM cards and contain information about the driver’s identity. Any individual passing the written exam for acquiring a driving license and successfully completing the ‘trial’ is eligible to receive the smart cards.

The department has also recently started an online application process for driving license in Nepal. To support this, the department is using SMS service for showing driving license results for written tests and driving license status. Before this, people had to visit the DoTM office to see the result and get the information for the licensed print status.

Now, people don’t need to visit the Transportation department to check the status regarding their driving license print status and written exam result. This will end long queues in transportation offices for getting just the simple information. People can receive the information by sending SMS to 33001 for just Rs 5.

To check result for written test, users have to type ‘WT <space> [Application ID number]’ and Send it to 33001.

Similarly, to check smart driving license print status, users have to type ‘LC <space> [Application ID Number]’ and Send it to 33001.

An average of 3,000 users apply for smart driving license on every working day.

DoTM mulls int’l driving licence
To make it easier for Nepalis travelling abroad and also foreigners who visit the country the government is planning to issue international driving licence. The Department of Transport Management (DoTM) has started homework to issue international driving permit (IDP) by amending the Federal Transport Act.

Gokarna Prasad Upadhyaya, spokesperson for DoTM, informed that they have already started work to amend the act. “A team of experts has been working aggressively to prepare a draft of the new Federal Transport Act and is planning to finalise it by March.”

He further said the department is planning to issue the international driving licence as there have been requests for such a document since long from many Nepalis who are living outside the country and the issue has also been raised by a Parliament committee.

According to data of the Department of Foreign Employment, more than five million Nepalis are living outside the country, but probably only 10 per cent of them have acquired a driving licence of the country they are residing in.

“We plan to issue the international driving licence so that Nepalis do not have to spend a huge amount of money to acquire a driving licence in foreign countries,”

Upadhyaya said, adding that Nepalis living in foreign countries are spending an average of $1,500 per person to acquire a driving licence.

Earlier, the Development and Technology Committee under the Federal Parliament had discussed on the issue and suggested the government to draft a law for issuance of international driving permit. The committee meeting had formed a 13-member team for further discussions on the issue, but the report is yet to be made public.

According to Upadhyaya, the government will adopt internationally accepted procedures of issuing such a driving licence. As per the initial plan, the international driving licence will be valid for up to three months and will help those who go abroad for short trips and also foreigners who visit Nepal.

He further said that the DoTM is currently studying the international practices of issuing such driving permits.

“We have found that at present 165 countries have been issuing international driving permits. After the act is endorsed, it will directly benefit many Nepalis who go abroad for work or study purposes and also foreigners who visit Nepal.”

After the formulation of the new act, the government will prepare a new guideline and work procedure for the implementation of the international driving permit.
