This new driving license system will stop the manufacturing of fake licenses, as all authentic driving permits will now be saved online. With the data of licenses computerized, the authenticity of each license can be checked within a matter of seconds.
This addition of the best top-notch technology is the utmost convenience to the police department in Sindh as well as the driving license offices and customers.
