Vehicle registration lists to be computerised

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport is developing an electronic vehicle registration system to be brought in by the end of this year, said Minister Sun Chanthol during the opening of a driver’s licence centre at Aeon Mall yesterday.

Chanthol said the new centre would help people obtain or extend their driver’s licences, taking only 15 to 20 minutes. Before, the process took up to three months, he said.

Chanthol said the ministry was currently researching electronic vehicle registration systems in other countries, such as Malaysia, Thailand and Germany.

“We are preparing the online system to provide good service for the people as the government leader wanted, and it is the provision of effective, transparent, fast service for the people,” he said.
