eCitizen Portal is a one stop online service portal that can basically service most of the things done by Huduma Centres. Applying for a driving license is basically done online. Inasmuch as the driving and everything physical is done at the driving school level, your details need to be entered into the eCitizen Portal to allow NTSA to track your training and certify that in deed you’re fit to be a driver.
Before you apply for an interim driving license you sure need to have passed the driving test that happens at a point of your driving school. After completion that is when you’re assigned a CoC number normally found on the physical driving license and also found on the interim driving license.
An interim driving license runs for a whole year. That is when it expires and is supposed to be used whenever you’re stopped by cops on the road as proof that you’re fit to drive only that you don’t own a driving license yet.
Provisional driving license is also a document a license of that matter that is used during your test driving.
