  1. Asalam o Alikum,

    My Cnic is from karachi. Can you guide how can I get the license in lahore. .. I learned driving recently in lahore till 6,7 month i cannnot go to karachi.. i once had learner licensed in year 2006. Online i can see its expiry in your system. Is that possible if my family get the renewed learning license without my presence and after 7 month i apply for driving lisence test once i get back to karachi ….. I was trying to contact at all your number but all numbers are no responding

    1. Ms.Nida Sheheryar,

      W.Salam … We, the PakGuide, are just a website to advise people some suitable suggestions for their problems. Therefore, we have no contact numbers. However, we will try to advise the ways which may help you resolve your problem.

      Your CNIC is from Karachi. On your CNIC, if you don’t have Lahore’s address as the “present address” then possibly Lahore’s license authority may not issue a license to you. But, you must apply at Lahore and may be they take an Affidavit from you to ensure your present address of Lahore where you are residing now. In start they will issue a Learner’s License and you will be able to drive.

      You said that you got a learner’s license in Karachi in the year 2006. The learner’s license remains valid for one year only. There is no need of renewing the license issued in 2006. Whenever you get back to Karachi, please apply for a fresh Learner’s License. It is a rule that after issuance of learner’s license you are eligible to apply after 42 days for the “permanent” driving license.
