Colombo (LNW): The Department of Motor Traffic (DMT) has informed that driving licences, which were delayed due to printing issues, will be issued within the next six months.
DMT Commissioner General Nishantha Anuruddha explained that the delay in printing driving licences was caused by the unavailability of printers.
However, he announced that the department received three printers on Monday, ‘allowing them to resume the printing of licences.
Highlighting that the department is set to print nearly 900,000 driving licences, Anuruddha mentioned that although issues related to importing licence cards were resolved, a significant challenge was the shortage of printing machines.
With the arrival of three additional printing machines, the DMT Commissioner General stated that printing activities would resume this week, and they anticipate completing the printing of all driving licences within the next six months.
