    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.

    Importance of driving licence in Haryana

    Apart from avoiding fines and making sure one has all the required documents at the time of car insurance or two-wheeler insurance claim settlement, there are other reasons why one should get a driving licence. Here’s why:

    • Proof that the individual is authorised: A driving licence is a legal document that proves that the person went through the necessary training and tests to obtain the driving licence.
    • Serves as an identification document: The permanent driving licence can be used for many KYC procedures as an identification document.
    • Identification in an emergency: If the driving licence holder meets with an accident and is found unconscious, he/she can be identified with the help of his/her driving licence. It can be helpful in contacting the family members in such situations.

    How to apply for driving licence in Haryana

    Applying for a driving licence in Haryana is a two-step process as explained below:

    Step 1: Apply for learner’s licence

    The learning licence is a temporary document that allows an individual to learn how to ride or drive a vehicle. Then the person can apply for the driving licence that requires the person to undergo a test. Since it is illegal to ride or drive a vehicle without a licence, it is imperative to get a learning licence before using a vehicle.

    The procedure to apply for a learning licence in Haryana is given below:

    • The individual is required to fill Form 2 (CMVR) and submit it along with the below-mentioned documents:
      • Three passport-sized photographs
      • Proof of age
      • Proof of residence
    • The documents will then be verified by the authorities.
    • The applicant should then appear for the on-the-spot photograph, pay the prescribed fee, and book a slot for the learning licence test.
    • The individual is then required to appear for the preliminary test.
    • Once the person passes the test, he/she will be given the learning licence. If he/she does not clear the test, he/she can retake the test.
    • The learning licence will be sent through speed post or can be downloaded online.

    The learning licence is valid for a period of 6 months, within which time the person has to apply for a driving licence.

    Step 2: Apply for driving licence

    One can apply for the permanent driving licence in Haryana by following the below-mentioned procedure:

    • Submit form 4 and form 6 along with the following documents:
      • 3 copies of passport-sized photographs
      • Learning licence
    • Once the verification of the documents is done, the applicant needs to pay the fee at the counter and book a slot for the driving test.
    • Once the applicant successfully passes the driving test, the permanent driving test will be sent to him/her through speed post.

    The permanent driving licence is usually valid for a period of 20 years or until the individual turns 50 years old, whichever occurs first. Before expiry of the licence, the person will have to renew the licence. Once the individual crosses 50 years of age, he/she will be provided with a licence with only 5 years validity.
