I wrote about the new biometric driving licenses a year ago but yesterday was the first time I see one of them, probably because the existing ones need 30 years to expire. Anyway, the new one is much smaller and wallet-friendly which is pretty awesome.

Cost-wise, my friend asked someone to do it for him and the whole thing cost him 110,000LL so I assume it should cost less than that if you do it on your own. Honestly, I’m tempted to do it but my license expires in 2033 so I’d rather wait till it wears out or the authorities force him to switch to biometric.

It’s identical in size to the UAE driving license
