Nepal Traffic Police can now check the authenticity of the probationary driving licence on the spot by scanning the QR code.
In April 2021, the Government of Nepal revised its driving licence rules, requiring new licence holders to serve a one-year probationary period. For the period, the drivers and riders were given probationary driving licences with a QR code.
The Department of Transport Management of Nepal finally developed a mobile app called “License Verification Mobile Application” that can take advantage of the QR Code.
The app can verify the authenticity of the probationary driving licence by scanning the QR code on it, minimising the use of forged driving licences.
At the event on February 21, 2022, the Department of Transport Management officially handed over the app to the Nepal Metropolitan Traffic Police Division.
The app was handed over by Namaraj Ghimire, Director General of the Department of Transport Management, to Umesh Raj Joshi, Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Metropolitan Traffic Police Division.
Traffic police throughout the valley can use the app. The officers must install the app on their smartphones. After that, the app can be used to scan the QR code on the probationary driving licence, which contains the licence holder’s complete information.
Previously, traffic officers were required to contact the Department of Transport Management whenever they needed to verify a driver’s licence, which was a lengthy and inefficient process.
SSP Joshi believes that the system will help to reduce the risk of accidents caused by fake licence holders.
Furthermore, he added that if a driver or rider violates traffic rules more than five times during the probationary period, the department has the authority to revoke the licence. The cancellation of the licence requires the rider or driver to retake the driving examination.
