CAIRO – 3 February 2019: Egyptians will be able to escape the long queues at traffic booths and instead finalize issuing cars’ licenses and pay traffic fines online via a new governmental website entitle “Egypt Traffic”.
Car owners will either renew their licenses directly from traffic units or have them sent to their homes after renewing or issuing the licenses through the website.
Egypt Traffic will be under the umbrella of the Interior Ministry website that also offers services of other sectors such as the General Directorate of Passports, Traffic Offices and Civil Status Authority.
Violators will receive a message on their phones including the type, time and place of violation, as well as the fine imposed on them.
Egypt Traffic will be a radical shift at the traffic public sector, a new move that comes within the government’s bid to digitalize all its services and institutions.
