IG Islamabad has been tasked with enforcing severe driving licence requirements

Qazi Jamil ur Rehman, Inspector General Police Islamabad, has requested that tighter driving licence examinations be implemented so that people’s lives can be protected to the utmost extent possible.

According to reports, the IGP visited the Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP) Headquarters on Tuesday and was briefed on the protocol for conducting driving licence examinations at the headquarters. Syed Karar Hussain, SSP (Traffic), was awarded the IGP. On the scene, there were also SP (Traffic) and other police officials.

During a report to the IGP, the SSP (Traffic) stated that over 35,000 vehicles had been cited for violating traffic rules in the previous week. He claimed that several initiatives were being taken to assist the locals, including providing sergeants with mobile phones, software for digital challans and driving licences, traffic education, and the free distribution of helmets to road users.

The ITP’s performance was praised by IG Qazi Jamil ur Rehman, who urged them to improve their services even further. He also asked the licence applicants about the testing procedure. He requested that the driving tests assess the drivers’ unique abilities, such as reversing a vehicle in tight spaces with reasonable accuracy. He believed that obtaining a driver’s licence was more of a formality than a test. He believes that the driving test should be made considerably more rigorous, and that only qualified persons should be granted a driver’s licence. He further requested that traffic laws be strictly enforced, particularly on the Srinagar Highway and the Expressway.
