Starting on Falgun 2, 2079, Bagmati Province in Nepal has introduced a new scoring system for smart driving license trials. The new system requires examinees to achieve a minimum score of 70 out of 100 points in the practical test to obtain a driver’s license. The previous system required a 50% pass mark in the written exam before taking the practical test, but the new system mandates a minimum of 60% in the written exam.
To oversee the implementation of the new system, the Minister of Labour, Employment and Transport of Bagmati Province, Eklal Shrestha, and the Principal Secretary of the province, Mukunda Prasad Niraula, visited the Chabahil Transport Management Office on Tuesday. During the visit, Minister Shrestha inaugurated the new system at the Transport Management Office in Bulukharyang.
According to Harihar Pokhrel, the ministry’s spokesperson, the new scoring system has already been introduced in other provinces of Nepal, including Province 1, Gandaki, Madhesh, Lumbini, and Sudurpaschim. The Bagmati Province has now followed suit by adopting the new system for smart driving license trials. The introduction of the scoring system is aimed at ensuring that drivers have the necessary skills and knowledge to drive safely on the roads.
