The National Transport and Safety Authority (NTSA) on Thursday has invalidated 51 driving school licenses across the country for failing to adhere to traffic rules.

They are stated in Section Four, part 2 (i) and (j) of the National Transport and Safety Authority Act, 2012 that states:

“(The Authority shall) establish systems and procedures for, and oversee the training, testing and licensing of drivers; (j) formulate and review the curriculum of driving schools.”

Making the announcement, NTSA Director-General Francis Meja asserted that the schools were revoked due to failure to provide documents required for the validation exercise that commenced in April.

The exercise was sanctioned in April by Interior CS Dr. Fred Matiangi in collaboration with the authority’s board.




He also exclaimed that the licenses were revoked as part of efforts to weed out schools operating illegally.

The director further noted that the schools are in various counties including Embu, Kisii, Kisumu, Bungoma, Mombasa, Meru, Marsabit, Nakuru, Uasin Gishu, Kiambu, Garissa and Machakos counties.
