Islamabad Traffic Police is upgrading the way they handle licenses and challans across the capital city. The police recently introduced a digital challan payment system which allows the violators to pay their challan fee on the spot using a digital payment system installed on their smartphones.
Similar upgrades have also been made to other areas including a new digital parking ticket system which ensures the complete safety of the vehicle when it is parked in a public space.
With more upgrades heading over soon, ITP has just announced that it is revising the fee structure for acquiring a new driving license or renewing already acquired driving license.
Although the changes aren’t so big, the only noticeable change is the restoration fee which has been significantly increased. From now on if a driving license is suspended, the first restoration will cost RS. 10,000. Previously it was only Rs. 5,000 to restore a suspended driving license for the first time.
Similarly, any driving license which is restored for the second time will cost a restoration fee of RS. 20,000. Previously this fee was only Rs. 10,000.
