List of New Rules For Driving License

August 2, 2022

You no longer need to visit the Regional Transport Office  and wait in large lines to obtain a driver’s license. The rules for obtaining a DL have been made quite simple by the government. Under these new guidelines, you can get a driving licence without appearing for any driving test at the Regional Transport Office (RTO).

The Union Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has announced these guidelines, and they are now in effect. It is a great sense of relief.These new rules are effective from July 2021 with a new fees structure, variations, and details.


According to information provided by the ministry, any reputable driving training institution will allow you to register for a license. The applicants will receive a certificate from the school if they complete the required training and pass the test there. The applicant’s driver’s license will be issued based on this certificate.
