Punjab driving license annual updated fees for 2024

In a remarkable initiative aimed at improving road safety, the Punjab government has fixed its driving license fee framework, starting January 1, 2024. The recent modification involves shifting from a five-year fee collection cycle to an annual system, with the goal of simplifying the licensing process and encouraging compliance with traffic laws.

The decision stems from a tragic incident involving an unlicensed young driver that resulted in the loss of six lives. The government is now committed to preventing such occurrences by implementing stricter measures. 
To address the issue of driving without a license, the Lahore City Traffic Police is intensifying efforts to curb crimes committed by individuals with a criminal background throughout Punjab.
