Chip inserted licences issued as part of 100-day-plan

THE Road Transportation Administration Department (RTAD) has begun issuing chip inserted licences in exchange for PVC driving licences as part of the Region Government’s 100-day-plan.
The chip inserted licences will begin to be issued in Nay Pyi Taw on 12 January next year and at the offices of RTAD in the regions and states on 1 April, said U San Yu Wai, head of Yangon East district.
These licences will ensure the safety of the licence holders. The smart licences can be immediately checked to see if they are genuine and the card-holder is, in fact, the licensee. Action will be taken against drivers who break traffic rules and regulations under the Demerit Point System.
Those holding chip inserted licenses issued from RTAD can drive in the member countries of ASEAN and the Greater Mekhong Subregion which both hold a road transportation contract with Myanmar.
The identification inserted chip can be scrutinised with the application of a mobile phone (Android Version 5.0 and above) including NFC Technology Version. Information on the chip includes the licencee’s name, their registered licence number, their National Registration Card number, the expiry date and the issue date of the chip.
Traffic danger awareness campaigns are being conducted constantly. Those who want to gain a smart licence can apply during the campaign and during awareness training courses.—Tin Win Lay (Kyi Myint Dine)
