ITP launches chip-based driving license

The Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) has on Tuesday rolled out a new Smart Driving License with the latest security features.

According to Islamabad Police’s spokesperson, the ITP has launched a new chip-based driving permit with helpful smart security features.

Aiming to provide better security to all the citizens and curb crimes, a microchip having all the biometric information of an individual would be embedded to help authenticate the identity of the driver.

The spokesperson said, “In case of [an] emergency in the new license, all data will be recorded through the chip.”

However, this new license is available at the same fee as the previous license.

He further added, “Through the smart license, the chances of deception will reduce. It would soon be linked to NADRA and excise’s database,” he added.

Also, an SMS Traffic Alerts System has also been launched by the capital’s police.
