Rules changed for driving license, know where to take the test now? Will there be no need to make 8 with the car?


If you want to drive in any country, then you must have a valid license. Without this, you cannot drive legally. The Motor Vehicles Act states many rules for drivers, including the mandatory driving license.

Any citizen above 18 years of age in India can apply for a driving license. However, from June 1, changes have been made in the rules for getting a driving license, including important changes in the driving test process. Let's see how these changes affect the way you take a driving test to get a license.

No need to go to RTO for the driving test now

Usually, when a person applies for a driving license, he has to go to the RTO office to take a computerized test, followed by a driving test at the RTO. Only then did he get his driving license. But after the changes in the Motor Vehicles Act from June 1, applicants no longer need to go to the RTO for a driving test. However, this option is optional.

Driving tests at private institutes

As per the new rules, applicants can take their driving test at a private driving institute instead of going to the RTO. The private institute or driving school must be recognized by the RTO for the test to be valid.

Certification required

Taking a driving test at a private driving school does not mean that you can just go there and be done with it. The driving school will issue a certificate confirming that the applicant has successfully passed the driving test. This certificate is required to prove that the test was completed.

Figure-8 test

At the RTO, applicants will have to go through a figure-8 course with a car or bike to pass the driving test. Private institutes will also ensure that their driving tests are of the same standards as those conducted by the RTO.
