In Islamabad, the authority responsible for issuing new driving licenses is the Islamabad Traffic Police (ITP). They assess people through theoretical and practical tests before granting a license for cars or motorcycles.
To start the process, those seeking a permanent driving license must first obtain a learner permit from the ITP, which costs Rs649, including NADRA fees.
After 42 days with the learner permit, applicants need to go to the designated traffic police office with their original CNIC, a copy of the CNIC, and the learner permit. At the office, they’ll receive a token and wait for their turn.
When called, they proceed to the counter for biometric and photo processes. After obtaining the test form, applicants attach a copy of their CNIC and the learner permit.
Next, they take a theoretical test. If they pass, they move on to the driving test at the traffic theme park. If successful, they are given a date to collect their permanent driving license.
For the car and motorcycle driving license in Islamabad, the fee is Rs1,800, payable to the ITP.
