The Indian government has made it compulsory for every car driver and bike rider to get a driving licence, under the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. Failure to carry a licence while using a vehicle could mean paying a fine to the traffic police. In addition to this, an accident caused by an individual who was driving/riding a vehicle without a licence could mean a rejection of the car insurance or two-wheeler insurance claim. It is, hence, a good idea to apply for a driving licence and carry it at all times while riding or driving.
