New Driving License Rules for Bike and Scooty in Nepal 2078


Government documentation. UFFFFFFF

License-making process. A much bigger UFFFFFF

Trust me, I know how you all feel. Been there. Done that. There is nothing more annoying than standing for three days till you get your turn to give your license examination. Finally, when you do get to the trial, what about the results.

Not sure whether you will pass. With 6 to 8 traffic police on the scene, adding more pressure to your already cooked confidence, you are sure to be grilled to a spot. The atmosphere will get to your nerves, resulting in you failing your trial exam or messing up some other way. No matter how much you have practiced, to pass on your first try you must be one lucky sheep.

I had to give my bike trial exam a total of three times. I could not stop bricking myself. I wished they implemented the new rule a bit sooner.

 NEW RULE!!?? Yes, there is a new rule for your trial examination now. Each of the tasks is marked from 10 – 20, depending on the difficulty. With 100 marks in total, you can pass your trial exam with a total of 70 marks.
