Cambodia to Issue Driver’s Licenses for People with Disability

The Ministry of Public Works and Transport will issue driver’s licenses for people with disabilities.

The decision was announced recently in the ministry’s joint statement with the Ministries of Health and Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation.

The release of the licenses for people with disabilities aims to enable them to enjoy their rights, which is a priority of the Royal Government of Cambodia.

People with disability, underlined the statement, will undergo tests to get the driver’s license, based on their disability levels – minor, medium and severe.

The statement also indicates that whether the vehicle used by people with disability will require some modification or not also depends on the disability levels.

The license for the Cambodian people with disability will be valid for ten years, while that for foreigner will be valid only for one year.
