NTSA to Issue Driving Licenses and Logbooks Through Post Office

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) will from next year 2022, start distributing driving licenses and logbooks through the post office.

This is after an agreement was signed by and the Postal Corporation of Kenya (PCK).

With the deal, one will have to indicate where they want to collect their logbooks or driving licenses during the application process.

The NTSA director in charge of motor vehicle registration and licensing Christopher Wanjau said services will come with charges depending on the distance.

“It will depend on the distance. If you want to collect your license in Garissa the charges will definitely be high compared to someone in Nyandarua or Nakuru,” he said.

The authority said the use of postal services will play a key role in reducing human traffic at its main offices.

The safety authority has been on the spot over issues related to its services but it believes the deal will be a major boost to moving closer to mwananchi.

The NTSA Director General George Njao said the authority is also moving towards the implementation of the same day service delivery directive by the president.

In 2019, the agency took its services to Huduma Centres across the country.

“This has decongested both our head and regional offices besides ensuring that clients receive quality services,” said Njao.

He said the digital driving licenses are already being printed in Mombasa and distributed to the public within days.

According to him, the public will also be in a position to monitor and track the documents because they will be systems controlled.
