But what if I told you there’s a way to check the status of your license card online? Yes! You heard it right. Let’s dive into this article to learn more about the license print check process.

What is a License Card?

Well, the answer is definitely obvious and known to most people. However, for those who don’t know: a license card is a specially printed card that grants permission for you to operate vehicles (motorbikes, scooters, cars, buses, etc.) in Nepal. A license card can be obtained by undergoing certain trials and written exams through the Department of Transportation Management (DOTM).
