Scoring system for driving licenses to re-commence

The system of giving marks for driving licenses will re-commence, said the Minister of Passenger Transport Management Mahinda Amaraweera.

The decision has been taken to prevent careless road accidents.

Due to the increase in the number of road accidents per day, the system of giving marks will be re-commenced, he further said.

In this scoring system, 24 points will be given for driving licenses, which will be reduced in the event of an accident.

The driver's license will be cancelled after the score has been reduced to 0.
