  1. Am called Mariam, for how long does it take for one to get processed a new driving license and except Kampala is there any other place one can acquire the driving licence. Thanks.

    1. The longer it takes to process and obtain a drivers licence in Uganda varies depending on how you handle the task. Officially, it takes the applicant up to 30 days or 1 full month to qualify for the test once the provisional license is issued. And when you acquire the learners to when you do the test varies from person to person. On the other hand, Uganda Driver Licencing System offices in Jinja, Mbale, Arua, Gulu, Mbarara, Fort Portal and Kampala. Thanks for the comment.

  2. What about those who possess driving skills by their own ways, do they also still need to go back to driving schools?

    1. Well said, your own driving skills. In simple terms, you still need to obtain a certificate of completion of the driving training and which is obtained from an approved driving school. If you can tell them to simply issue you one without training, that is good to try.
