  2. Salam alaekum,
    I got my learner license back in 2016 which expired in 2017, I went for renewal of that in December 2019, for which the driving license centre in nazimabad said that I could apply for permanent license and they took my theory test and medical fitness which I passed, then I had to submit fees for learner’s license (200) and 1060 (for permanent license) and then they took my practical test, which I failed! I had to wait for 42 days to reappear for the driving test, but due to pandemic and other personal reasons, I did not attempt! Now what I need to ask is do I need to apply for learner’s now since it’s March 2022, or am I eligible for the permanent driving license practical test and do I need to submit the fees again, keeping in mind they took my learner’s license back in 2019 while I attempted for permanent license, though I do have the cash receipt for 1260 rupees that I paid then, thanks. It would be of great help if you could help me out.

    1. Dear Mr.Ahmed,

      There is no problem and it happens sometimes. Please apply again for “permanent” license. Most probably they will not ask further fees (Rs.1,060) and may allow to you for appearing again in their “practical test.” It is possible that license branch may charge from you the Learning License fees for two years of 2020 and 2021. Please visit the nearest License Branch with CNIC and expired license.
