The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) under Director-General Francis Meja has revoked licenses of 51 driving schools in the ongoing crackdown on Illegal driving schools.

On Thursday, Meja made the announcement saying the licenses had been withdrawn after the schools in question failed to provide documents required for the validation exercise that began in April.

“The authority has revoked their licenses and deactivated their access to the NTSA Driving School Portal. The exercise is intended to weed out driving schools operating without meeting the set requirements. The documents submitted by driving schools are being assessed to establish their compliance levels,” reads part of the statement from NTSA.

The authority has also warned Kenyans against enrolling in the listed driving schools because they are not accredited.

Matiang'i order

In April Interior CS Fred Matiang'i ordered all Driving schools to re-validated their licences with NTSA or risk permanent closure as from 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, " the CS stated.

The CS mentioned that, the changes are part of the drastic reforms the government is implementing in the traffic sector.
