Members of the public now can acquire driving licences from the Transport Management Office in Thulo Bharyang of Swayambhu as well.
Distribution of the driving licence began here on Sunday.
Inaugurating the service, Minister for Physical Infrastructure and Transport Ramesh Lekhak said “similar offices would begin service from Chabahil of Kathmandu and Jagati of Bhaktapur from coming January 11.”
The expansion of the Transport Office is expected to facilitate the acquiring of driving licences without much hassle, he added.
From next Sunday, according to the Department of Transport Management, the new office will perform all licence-related tasks. The new office does not have a trial centre of its own, so in the beginning, it will perform licence renewal-related tasks. It will also accept online applications for driving licences.
The opening of the transport office in Swayambhu is expected to lessen pressure of service-seekers in the transport management office in Ekantakuna, Lalitpur.
