To be able to drive a car in any state in India, it is mandatory by law to hold a four wheeler driving licence. Anybody found driving a car without a valid licence will be fined heavily or imprisoned too. Driving licences, in India, are issued by the Regional Transport Offices (RTOs). Each district of a state, in most cases, has an RTO where one can apply for a driving licence.
