How to check if your driving license is ready for collection – Kenya

You can now check if your driving license is ready for collection by using your interim driving license number via the KRA RTD – Driving license Checker. Let’s say you’ve gone through the usual vigorous driving lessons, perhaps every day in the evening, nothing comes as rewarding as getting the actual license. Nowadays, it doesn’t take as long as it used to, but it still helps to have an idea of just the perfect time to go for collection.

By definition, a Kenyan driving license is an official acknowledgement by the relevant authority that someone has gone through and passed the necessary exams. It therefore allows someone to drive a motor vehicle of any class on Kenyan roads. This license is applied for and as such, it can be invalidated by the relevant authority. Kenyan driving licenses are usually renewed after a specified period after payment of a set fee.
