To drive legally in the country, vehicle owners and users need to have a valid driving license, motor insurance (third-party motor insurance or a comprehensive motor insurance), registration certificate of the vehicle and a pollution under control (PUC) certificate. As per the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, vehicles users (private and commercial) should always carry the aforementioned documents when driving to avoid being penalised by the traffic police.
Regional Transport Offices in Odisha offer services such as issuance of the learner’s license, permanent driving license, registration of the vehicle, and re-registration of a vehicle if the ownership has been transferred or if the vehicle owner has moved to the state of Odisha and has been residing in the state for more than 12 months. In addition, the Regional Transport Office also issues fitness certificates for commercial and private vehicles, and No Objection certificates for re-registration and if one wishes to change his/her address on the registration certificate or on his/her permanent driving license.

To get a learner’s license, permanent driving license, registration certificate for a vehicle or to avail any of the other services offered by Regional Transport Offices in Odisha, the candidate has to visit the Regional Transport Office in his/her jurisdiction. This depends on the permanent address of the candidate and usually is the closest Regional Transport Office from his/her place of residence. For any process at the RTO, the candidate has to only visit the RTO in his/her jurisdiction and not any other RTO. As already mentioned, if the candidate does shift his/her permanent residence, then he/she should apply for an address change and procure the No Objection Certificate from the current RTO to shift to another RTO in the state. The same applies if the candidate is shifting to another state (other than Odisha). He/she will have to procure a No Objection Certificate to shift the vehicle registration to the Regional Transport Office in another state.
