How to Renew Driving License in Pakistan?

Do you have a valid driving license? Many fail to get it renewed because they either don’t know that it has expired or don’t bother renewing it. Make sure yours is valid before hitting the road to avoid any unpleasant situation. It’s your responsibility as a law abiding citizen and driver. Generally, this license is valid for 3 or 5 years. It expires quicker than the CNIC, which is the main reason why people mostly forget about driving license renewal in Pakistan and don’t renew it on time.
