TMO launches online driving licence registration system
Kathmandu, December 25
Transport Management Office, Bagmati under the Department of Transport Management today launched online driving licence registration system.
Minister of Physical Infrastructure and Transport Ramesh Lekhak inaugurated the online application system amid a programme organised at the Transport Magement Office in Ekantakuna, Lalitpur.
A press release issued by the DoTM said interested persons meeting all requirements could submit application online for two-wheelers (motorcycle, scooter and moped) only until further notice.
The live system installed on the official website of the DoTM does not entertain the applications for three-wheeler/ four wheeler and heavy vehicles, including bulldozer and roller.
“The system will not receive more than 500 applications a day for the time being and application may be submitted online for the Transport Management Office, Bagmati only,” read the release. It also gives date to the concerned applicant for the written exam.
“If the applicant fails to attend the exam on the given date, the application will automatically cease to be effective,” it added. Applicants can visit www.dotm.gov.np and click on the ‘Online Driving Licence Form’ link to download the form and submit it online.
Once the application is submitted, the system provides the concerned application with a unique reference number and other necessary details, which should be produced while sitting for written exam on a date prescribed by the Transport Management Office.
Talking to The Himalayan Times yesterday, Minister Lekhak had informed that the government had already initiated the process of opening three more outlets of the Transport Management Office, Bagmati in Kalanki, Chabahil and Bhaktapur.
According to the Department of Transport Management, the online system aims to make the driving licence application process efficient and hassle-free. After the launch of the online application system, people will not have to wait in long queues to submit their driving licence applications.
“The online system will eliminate long queues at the Transport Management Office and bring about transparency in issuance of driving licence.
It is also a stepping stone towards making government offices paperless,” said Minister Lekhak, adding, “We will gradually launch online application system in the other parts of the country.”
