ntsa driving licence checker:how to check driving licence validity in 2022

The National Transport and Safety Authority (ntsa) has reported high rates of false driving licenses on most roadways around the nation over the years. It is unlawful to use a phony driver's license in Kenya, and if you are detected, you will face serious consequences from the authorities. Fortunately, the NTSAhas devised several solutions to this problem, including giving Kenyan drivers a digital driver's license.

You may apply for an e-driving license at any ntsa location or online at the ntsa website as long as you have the appropriate paperwork and are a qualified driver certified by a recognized driving school in Kenya. However, keep in mind that this new generation of licenses comes with a 20-point penalty if you commit a traffic violation. When your points are depleted, you will no longer be able to drive.

On the other hand, with the widespread use of the internet and online services throughout the nation, checking the status of your driver's license may be done at your leisure as long as your know-how. In this post, we'll look at how to examine ntsa driving test results and their authenticity utilizing several approaches.


In any case, because a smartphone can be quickly accessible in this century, this should be the most applicable technique. Recharge your smartphone using Airtime, and keep in mind that this approach works with all of the country's main mobile providers. Send your National ID number to 22846 in the format DL XXXX Where (XXXX ) is the person's ID number. To check for a PSV driver or conductor's license, SMS the person's ID number to 22846 using this format: OP XXXXX. Again XXXXX is the person's National identity number

ntsa tims Account

You may recall that we indicated before in this post that the e-driving license may be obtained quickly via the ntsa website; well, my tims account will also be useful in this situation. Log in to your ntsa tim portal to see if your driver's license is genuine or counterfeit, but first, go to the tims portal and register your information; otherwise, you won't be recognized. To determine whether the driving license you're presently using is under your name and National ID, you'll need to have an active ntsa tim account. You may also use this gateway to determine when your driver's license will expire. What a fantastic idea!

ntsa App

Most government services are now digitized due to technological advancements, as opposed to the past, when people had to line for extended periods to be serviced. It may now be done with a single click using the eCitizen portal. ntsa has made a similar transition to digital media. The organization has mobile apps that Android and iOS users may readily get via the Platforms' respective App stores. Log in with your data, hover over the Driving License Verification Tab, input your National ID number, and click verify after you've downloaded the ntsa App to your phone. Wait for the system to check the validity of your license before seeing the results on the screen. You may also use the same app to check the status of your driver's license.

This option is most useful if you have been unable to obtain assistance online, whether through the eCitizen portal, the TIMS portal, or the ntsa App. If this is the case, you can contact any ntsa office in your area at any time. Remember to bring your driver's license and national identity card with you, as the officer in charge may want to double-check your information.
