Department of Motor Traffic offers quick service after President’s visit
Passenger Transport Management and Power and Energy Minister Mahinda Amaraweera said yesterday that people whom he had met at the Werahera office branch of the Department of Motor Traffic had told him that the customer service at the branch has now been streamlined following the sudden inspection tour by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa two weeks ago.
Minister Amaraweera had visited the RMV Werahera branch yesterday to participate in the progress review meeting and he had spoken to several people who had come there to obtain the services of the RMV.
They told the Minster that work at the RMV branch has now been expedited following the sudden visit by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa.
Accordingly, drivers’ licences are now being issued in just two hours if the paperwork has been correctly completed. Moreover, once the driving licence is ready, the licence-holder receives an SMS on his or her mobile phone.
The Minister also instructed officials at the Werahera branch to carry out all the directions issued by President during his visit.
He also said that priority should not be given to any customer who is in the queue and the service should be provided according to the token numbers issued to customers.

Well done Prez! These kinds of even mini-achievements were unheard of during the former Yahapalanaya slobs time – as from the President down to PM, to Ministers, to Heads of Depts, not one gave a damn on how the Government was serving the people – as they were corrupt to the core, incompetent, wasteful and outright lazy (it was unthinkable to get out of his luxury air-conditioned office, once on a very hot day in Colombo, a ministry head friend of mine told me!)
Stop living in a dream world.
I visited the DMT on Thursday 09 Jan 2020 at 7AM to get my DL renewed.
I was there at 7AM; the queue was more than 500 persons long.
As I stood in the queue, many touts approached me and offered to give a twin-digit ticket for LKR 5000!
Simon, in SL, we are a CORRUPT society, right from the 1st Citizen to the last.
Don’t ever dream of becoming Singpaore where spitting a chewing gum in public results in a 200 dollar fine.
The Sinhala Buddhists leaders in SL are corrupt to the core; we have no hope, Simon.
Andrada honey-bunch, your (and your other handle names in this forum) constant reference, with bigotry and malice, to “Sinhala-Buddhist” tells me you are an undercover Kotiya operative, someone who is so bitter about Nanthikadal I but surprisingly yearning for a Nanthikadal II (there is a name for that illness, the mental illness that loves pain and suffering but I can’t remember so someone can perhaps help me with it? :))
Anyway, bring it on honey-bunch and see how fast the ‘vaporizing’ happens under this unashamedly and proudly avowed “Sinhala-Buddhist ” set up that we, the patriotic masses, put in place (despite all evil the designs by anti-patriotic, separatist, jihadist, NGO/INGO, rats to stop our efforts and ruin our beloved Sri Lanka)!! The bottom line: Sinhala Buddhists in Sri Lanka form the absolute majority and any bigoted rat who cannot live with them can vacate and go live in many other places – such as Toilet Nadu, Switzerland, Canada, etc. and shut the **** up for good! :))
That aside, meaning if I disregard your obvious bigotry, I don’t doubt your story and this is the very corruption (that appears to have rooted very deep over the past 5 years under the useless Yahapalanayas), that this new set up, which is barely 1 month in power, cannot be held responsible for correction overnight, but must nevertheless continue vigorously, and mercilessly, to eradicate.
