Kenyan motorists have until July 2020 to get a smart driving license or face heavy fines. This initiative by the National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) was started in 2018. It seeks to ensure that good driving habits are maintained, as well as reduce the costs of motor vehicle insurance. The new smart driving license will look very similar to a national ID card. It will contain all your personal data, including your blood group. This information will be contained on a computer chip that is only readable through special electronic gadgets which are owned and will be managed by NTSA officials. In addition, the new smart driving license will come with points that will be deducted with every traffic offense committed. Repeat offenders will get on-the-spot fines, mandatory refresher driving classes or have their licenses suspended or taken away for good.
