How to get digital driving license in Kenya: Many Kenyans have been asking how they can acquire the new digital driving license. So far, the National Transport and Safety Authority has issued thousands of digital driving licenses to Kenyans.

The new generation e-driving licence is loaded with points that get deducted every time a motorist commits a traffic offence. Any licence that is emptied of points is ultimately withdrawn from use.

“At the moment, no preference is being given to anyone in the issuance of the licence. As long as you have the required documents and are qualified, the new generation driving licences are available in any of our centres,” says NTSA.

The digital licences, widely used in the West, are loaded with 20 points that are deducted progressively at a rate proportional to the offence committed.

How to get digital driving license in Kenya:

1). You will need to open a TIMS account. You can do this at any cyber cafe in Kenya. To open the account, you will also be required to give your KRA PIN number.

2). Once you have opened the TIMS account, you will need to book an appointment with the NTSA via your TIMS account.

3). Once your appointment is approved, you should visit an office of the National Transport and Safety Authority.

4). At the NTSA, your details will be registered and a passport photo of you will be taken.

5). At the NTSA office, you should have Sh. 3,110 in your mobile phone which you will pay to the NTSA paybill number 206 206 to get the digital driving license.

6). Once you have registered, your digital driving license will be ready in a matter of days.

  1. ITS AGOOD IDEA BUT THE COST IS PREHIBITIVE, WHY NOT CHARGE LIKE THE BANKS DO ON ATM CARDS, AFTER ALL ITS FOR YOUR BENEFIT TOO TO MONITOR MOTORISTS. MEMBERS OF PUBLIC WILL AVOID THIS REMEMBER KENYANS ARE TAXED HEAVILY AND THEREFORE THEY AVOID SOME COSTS. LET THE GOVERNMENT SUBSIDIZE

  2. Maybe also consider partnering with a Bank on the issuance and the remittance is channeled through a bank. Bank’s have cards and the card is chip which can be enabled different wallets

  3. Why would one visit an NTSA office if information can be confirmed from the existing DL? And why not just renew the DL in a the digital way using the current tarrifs? 3110 is exorbitant.

  4. My driving license is expiring next year in November and had renewed for three years, so what happens to the remaining time and had paid for three years can’t the government wait till when one is about to renew then you can be asked to apply for the digital one or when replacing the old or lost one
