Vehicle Inspectorate Department (VID) director Joseph Pedzapasi told The Herald they will introduce electronic Provisional Drivers’ Licence examinations just before Christmas as part of a number of new measures to reduce corruption in the acquisition of driver’s licences.

Said Dzapasi:

We are adopting the vision of our political leadership in fighting corruption in the country. VID officials have been accused of deep-rooted corruption, which involved soliciting for bribes from clients, hence the adoption of e-PDL (electronic provisional driver’s licence) examination of prospective learner drivers would obviously go a long way in curbing such cases. So far we are upgrading our computer systems for the programme which the VID has pencilled to start just before Christmas. The new system will avoid human interface between clients and our officers. No passport photos will be needed from our clients since the computer system will produce the photos itself. It is both fast and convenient.
