The written examination for applicants of driving licences will be computerised from May, Transport Minister Nimal Siripala de Silva said.

He said he had instructed the DMT to streamline the examinations process.

“I have directed the Commissioners to begin computerized examinations at least by May 3,” he said.

DMT officials said fresh questions would be automatically generated by the system on a daily basis and results issued instantly.

“We must also think of new ways of issuing medical reports, for applicants of driving licences,” an official said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Mr. minister we cannot believe a word you say. Have you just woken up from your slumber again and made these remarks. Can you remember some time back you said since November 1 2017 all three wheelers should have meters and even give a receipt to the customer. What happened to it. Have you gone to the streets and checked it out.
