As a safety norm, the Government of India rolled out the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. The Act brought about several road rules and regulations for vehicle owners in the country to follow, one of them being that vehicle owners need to have a valid permanent four wheeler driving license to be eligible to drive a car. Once issued by the Regional Transport Office in the jurisdiction of the vehicle owner, the driving license is valid for a period of 20 years or till the vehicle owner reaches the age of 50 years. In order to apply for the permanent driving license, vehicle owners first need to take the learner’s license test. If the vehicle owner clears the written test on the road rules and regulations, he/she will be handed the learner’s license. 30 days after the issuance of the learner’s license, the vehicle owner is eligible to apply for the permanent driving license.

The online process can be carried out on the website of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, whereas, with the offline process, the vehicle owner needs to visit the RTO in his/her jurisdiction and carry out the entire process there.
