A driving licence is a legal document issued to you by the Kenyan government through NTSA, authorizing you to drive a motor vehicle.
The Kenyan transport sector ensures that, there is road sanity along all the Kenyan roads through the NTSA. Therefore, all drivers have to produce a valid licence that shows that they qualified to drive.
In 2018, a new digital driving license in Kenya also known as a smart driving licence was rolled out for use. The digital licence is meant to replace the red booklet licence.
With the digital licence, you will not need to carry the booklet every where you go, since it can be retrieved online.
The NTSA has made things easier for Kenyan drivers, by allowing them to carry on online registration by themselves. Registration can be done from home, cyber or offices as long as there is available internet connection.
