The Vehicle Inspectorate Department (VID) through the Ministry of Transport and Infrastructural Development on Monday officially launched the Electronic Learner’s Licence Testing System.

With the coming of this system, VID will achieve multiple benefits that will include an eradication of corruption by reducing human to human interaction. It will also make it easy to track financial transactions as receipts and bookings are done electronically.

The Electronic Learner’s Licence Testing System will also do away with the need by prospective drivers to bring licence photographs as these will now now be captured by the system. There will also be no human input in the marking of the test on completion as this is now being done electronically on completion of the test by the candidate. Upon completion and a pass mark has been attained, the candidate’s Provisional Drivers License is produced.

Another special feature that comes with the
Electronic Learner’s Licence Testing System is the randomization of questions and tests from one candidate to the next to such an extent that no one can predict which exam they will take.

Addressing those gathered at the official launch, Transport and Infrastructural Development Minister Eng. Joel Biggie Matiza said that the system was developed under the Zimbabwe Integrated Transport Management Information System.

“The security features inherent in the system means we are guaranteed of a complete eradication of fake provisional drivers’ licenses.”

With the rolling out of this system, government will at least plug leakages in revenue collection as the system keeps a credit and accounts trail of all transactions. It will also help clean the image of the government that has been tainted by massive corruption in the VID.
