How to add another driving permit class in Uganda (permit extension)

add class in driving permit Wondering how to go about adding another class in your Uganda driving permit? Stranded on what to do and how to do it with regard to performing a drivers license extension? This guide is for you and a must read. Just like I shared with you in my other post about Obtaining the different classes of driving permit in Uganda, yes fact is that certain procedures must be followed.

In order for one to drive additional motor vehicle types legally on Ugandan roads, addition of the matching driving permit class is requires since the different classes allows you to drive the different motor vehicles types.
