Ministry Of Road Transport And Highways Announces Revamp Of Driving License Acquisition Process

Starting June 1, 2024, significant changes in the process of acquiring a driving license in India will streamline procedures, enhance road safety, and reduce vehicular pollution, as announced by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways.


Driving Tests at Private Training Centers

Under the new regulations, private driving training centers will conduct driving tests and issue eligibility certificates for licenses. This move aims to reduce wait times at government-run Regional Transport Offices (RTOs) and make licensing more convenient for applicants.

Focus on Pollution Reduction and Road Safety

Efforts to improve air quality include phasing out old government vehicles and introducing stricter car emission standards. Additionally, hefty fines and penalties for minors caught driving aim to deter underage driving and enforce road safety regulations.

Simplified Documentation and Training Requirements

Documentation requirements for new licenses are simplified, and training centers must meet specific land and instructor qualifications criteria.

Training Duration and Licensing Fees

Training duration for Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs) and Heavy Motor Vehicles (HMVs) is clearly defined, and licensing fees are standardized to ensure transparency.
