For the convenience of the public, Punjab Police has introduced an electronic driving license on the orders of Inspector General Dr. Usman Anwar.
The Punjab Police has introduced electronic driving licensing for the first time in Pakistan, according to IG Punjab Dr. Usman Anwar in a special message on the license. Dr. Usman Anwar added that citizens can download and save the electronic driver’s license in PDF format to their mobile devices.
The printable PDF driving license can be used when traveling. Dr. Usman Anwar said that the e-driving license had the capability to scan QR codes. The e-driving license function offers a detailed description of the color photo, address, and license with which the traffic police can validate your license.
Dr. Usman Anwar, the IGP for Punjab, stated that more than 3 million people had received driving licenses from the Punjab Police this year. There are now more than 200 license centers spread out over the province, up from 45 previously.
“I also want to thank the traffic police and wardens for their outstanding work”, IGP Punjab Dr. Usman Anwar continued.
Following the acquisition of a driver’s license, individuals were urged by IG Punjab Dr. Usman Anwar to ensure the following of traffic laws. Traffic accidents decline when the rules of the road are restricted.
It’s crucial to remember that you must first apply for a standard commission before you can apply for an electronic driver’s license.
Who is Eligible to Apply for a Driving License?
One must have already passed their driving test in order to receive an E Driving License. The issuance of an E Driving License is contingent upon the applicant passing their driving test, regardless of whether they have applied for a learner’s permit or are in the process of doing so.
One can apply for an E-Driving License after passing the driving test instead of waiting for the original, physical license to be delivered to their door.

Benefits of Getting E-Driving License
An electronic version of the conventional paper driving license is known as a “e-license.” It is published by the Pakistani government and kept in a safe database. The e-license has a number of advantages over the conventional paper license, such as:
- Convenience: You don’t need to carry about a physical copy of the e-license because it can be accessed and used on a smartphone or other digital device.
- Security: The e-license is more secure than the paper license since it is kept in an encrypted digital database.
- Cost-effectiveness: Producing and maintaining an e-license is less expensive than a paper license.
- Speed: Compared to a paper license, an e-license can be processed and issued more quickly.
- Transparency: Because all transactions are recorded in the electronic database, the e-license system is more transparent than the paper licensing system.
Local reports claim that over the course of three years, the Federal Investigation Authority (FIA) has seized 27,000 phony licenses. According to estimates, a single phony license cost between $4000 and $10,000.
The suspect used a bogus website to confirm the validity of the fake licenses. Additionally, the offenders used a printing machine to create a phony driver’s license and an online app to obtain the money.
