Learn to drive ? Here’s how you can get a learner’s license without leaving home
Are you finally learning to drive a car? If so, the first thing to do is apply for a learning license. Indeed, the license allows you legally to learn to drive with a person holding a permanent driving license on Indian roads. If you fail to carry a learner’s permit while driving on the roads, you could face a penalty of Rs 450 or even a jail term depending on your crime. A learner’s license is also an important first step if you want to apply for a permanent driver’s license.
Things are no longer as tedious and time-consuming as they were aeons ago. Now you can sit at home, apply for the learner’s permit, take the test, and get your license in seconds. All this from the comfort of your home. You do not have to go to an RTO office to pick up your learner’s licence. However, if you are eligible for a permanent driver’s license, you will need to be physically present at the transport office and present yourself for a driving test. If you pass the test, only then will you be eligible for the DL.
