Matiang'i announces revocation of licences for all driving schools in Kenya

Order to take effect next week

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang'i

Interior CS Fred Matiang'i on Thursday announced that the government would from next week Thursday (May 2nd) revoke licenses for all driving schools in the country and require them to apply for new permits within 60 days.

Matiang'i said the changes are part of the drastic reforms the government plans to implement in the traffic sector.

Institutions that will not have re-validated their licences with the National Transport and Safety Authority will be permanently shut down after July 1st.

"We begin today by asking all driving schools in the country to ensure that their licenses are re-validated by July 1st. If they do not have the new generation licenses by then, they should therefore consider themselves closed."

"We want to radically change the public transport sector. Some of those changes are going to be painful because they are going to require that we work and live differently from how we are used to," the CS stated.

Matiang'i said the process of issuing new licences will include a thorough evaluation including inspecting schools, looking at their level of compliance to ensure that they are environments worthy of the task they undertake to fully prepare drivers.
