Punjab Police set a record by issuing 111,000 driving licenses in one day. This initiative follows a crackdown on individuals driving without valid licenses, triggered by a tragic incident in Lahore.
The licenses include learning, national, and international types. The breakdown reveals that 27,000 licenses were issued in Lahore, with increases in other cities as well.
The Punjab government recently raised the driving license fee from Rs60 to Rs1,000, effective December 5. Despite the fee increase, individuals can still apply at the old fee until December 31. This effort aims to improve road safety by ensuring drivers have valid licenses.
