Driving Licence Application Form

Useful Government Forms - Tuesday, November 16, 2010 8:08:05 AM



 

A Driving Licence is an official document certifying that the holder is suitably qualified to drive a motor vehicle or vehicles. Under the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 in India, no person can drive a motor vehicle in any public place unless he holds a valid Driving Licence issued to him, authorising him to drive a vehicle of that particular category. In India, each state has a 'Regional Transport Authority' or 'Regional Transport Offices' or ‘RTOs’ that issue driving licenses. Though the minimum age for obtaining a driver's license for small motorcycles is 14 years, it is 16-18 years in case of all other vehicles and it varies from state to state. In order to get a driving license, the candidates are required to appear for an oral test and get the learner's license which would be valid for 6 months from the date of issuing. Thereafter, the drivers can pass the driving test to obtain the driving license.
 

In India, two kinds of Driving Licences are issued:
• Learner's Licence
• Permanent Licence

Learner's Licence is valid only for six months. Permanent Licence can be availed only after the expiry of one month from the date of issuance of the Learner's Licence.

How to get a Driving Licence?
There are two stages for obtaining a Driving License. First, to apply for a Learner's License and next for a Permanent License:
