Are you planning to get a driving license? Then you are surely concerned about the multiple visits to your local RTO and the endless waiting in long-queues. However, we currently live in the age of Digital India and the MoRTH may have implemented the perfect solution to make your experience streamlined and hassle free. According to a new rule, the general public does not have to pass a driving school and then participate in additional tests at the RTO. The whole process of a physical driving test can be completed at the training centre itself.
For this, you can first shortlist the government recognised driving schools in your locality. Once you have enrolled into a driving program and passed your exam, the driving school is supposed to give you a passing certification. The driving program will also feature 8 hours of theoretical training. Once issued, the certification will feature several details such as your road manners, traffic rules knowledge, first-aid training and total kilometres driven during training.
Once you have passed the exam, the driving certificate along with permit papers will need to be submitted to your local RTO which will issue you a driving license without further testing. This streamlined process will reduce the footfall in local RTOs and take the pressure off from the offices. It also takes away the need to stand in long-queues at the RTO and participate in multiple tests.
