Driving license is a mandatory document to drive in India. The first step to obtaining a Driving License in India is getting a Learner’s License. A Learner’s License is a document issued by the respective state Regional Transport Office (RTO) and Regional Transport Authority (RTO). You must be familiar with road rules and regulations to get a Learner’s License. Learning License is issued to the candidate after s/he passes an online test that will test his/her knowledge on road rules. Learner’s License allows you to practice driving on public roads when you are accompanied by a person who holds a permanent Driving License.
We in general, tend to approach middlemen to obtain the learner’s license because of various reasons ,though there are many avenues available online from central and state transport departments. The Logical Indian requests everyone to use the avenues provided by the government and save thousands of rupees which are paid to the middlemen.
The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) has been facilitating computerization of over 1000 Road Transport Offices (RTOs) across the country . Ministry entrusted National Informatics Centre the task to standardize & deploy the software VAHAN for Vehicle Registration and SARATHI for Driving Licenses and compilation of data with respect to Vehicle Registration and Driving Licenses of all the states in State Register and National Register.
The VAHAN & SARATHI are conceptualized to capture the functionalities as mandated by Central Motor Vehicle Act, 1988 as well as State motor vehicle Rules with customization in the core product to suit the requirements of 36 States.
