No More RTO Hassles: Now Get Your Driving License Test Done at Private Centers!

Govt has made the process of obtaining a driving license quite hassle free

Category-

The central government has made significant changes to the process of obtaining a driving license. Starting June 1, 2024, you can take your driving test not only at Regional Transport Offices (RTOs) but also at nearby private centers or driving schools. These centers will be authorized to conduct driving tests and issue driving certificates. This change will make obtaining a driving license easier.

Currently, the process of obtaining a driving license is quite lengthy. It involves a lot of paperwork, filling out numerous forms, and visiting multiple offices. The lengthy and complex procedure has led to corruption in RTO offices, affecting road safety across the country. To address these issues, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has announced significant changes to the existing driving regulations in India.
