NTSA ready to launch smart driving license

The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) will soon roll out the smart digital driving license.

The authority has announced that it is finalizing on the roll-out.

“Public announcements on how to acquire the Smart DL will be made in due course. To access our online services, kindly log on to, click on TIMS and Register your Account,” wrote the Authority on its Facebook page.

NTSA had in March signed a Sh2.1 billion contract with the National Bank of Kenya for the supply of smart driving licenses.

The authority’s director-general Francis Meja said the contract had been signed for manufacture and formulation of smart digital licenses that will among other things carry a detailed driver profile, which includes traffic breaches.

Kenyan motorists will replace their paper driving licenses with the digital versions.
