To make it easier for the ones living in Punjab to drive, the Government of Punjab has launched a website, Driving License Issuance Management System DLIMS, so that anyone who wishes to apply for a Punjab driving license, can do so from the safety and comfort of home.
The DLIMS has automated the lengthy and time consuming process of applying for the driving license.
It allows one to apply for a new DLIMS or even renew your old license. The web portal has another feature, through which you can keep track of the progress of the application online.
