licence sans delays
A new scheme to expedite the issue of driving licences at the RMV
has been introduced by Motor Traffic Commissioner B. Wijeratna.
This new service came into effect last week with the assistance
of the Postmaster General.
completely new envelope has been designed to mail driving licences
to their respective holders. "This new envelope comes with
a window on it and is expected to help the postman to identify the
recipient and minimise incorrect deliveries," he said.
about 25,000 driving licences are issued by the RMV and this new
system I introduced is expected to streamline our system and provide
a better service to the public," he said. In order to avoid
errors and ensure a speedy service, he makes the following requests
from the applicants:
write clearly in your own handwriting your name and address, correctly
spelt. The application form is usually filled by the driving school
staff who are not familiar with the names. To paste your photograph
on the form. Some applicants staple the photograph to the form.
This, he says, must be avoided.
