In Punjab, all activities regarding the implementation of road traffic rules are enforced by the State Transport Department. This department also oversees the Regional Transport Offices (RTOs) located in different parts of the state. One of the primary objectives of this department is to strictly enforce the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988 in the state. The state is also a pioneer when it comes to the usage of Information Technology to computerise various tasks. The state’s Transport Department is managed by a Transport Commissioner and two additional Transport Commissioners.
The RTOs of a state have various functions including issuance of license, registration of new vehicles, maintenance of vehicle number database, promotion of road safety, etc. Some of the key functions and activities of Punjab RTOs are listed as follows:
|PB58||Dera Baba Nanak|
|PB66||Nihal Singh Wala|
|PB77||Guru Har Sahai|
With the advent of the Internet, it is now possible to do a lot of tasks online without even visiting the RTO. For instance, you may apply for a learner’s license using the Sarathi portal and schedule an appointment for taking the test. This helps you save a lot of time. Similarly, you can also apply for other things like change in address, phone number, etc., using online modes. However, not everything can be done online. You have to visit the RTO to take the driving test or learner’s license test. Another thing you must note is that you cannot choose the RTO office randomly. It is necessary to visit only the RTO in your jurisdiction for any kind of services.
