A driving licence is a document that authorises an individual to ride or drive motor vehicles in public places. In India, individuals are not allowed to operate motor vehicles unless they possess a valid driving licence, as per the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. To obtain a driving licence, you will need to approach the RTO in your jurisdiction or apply for it online. Keep in mind that you will need a learner’s licence to apply for a permanent driving licence.
The validity of a driving licence is 20 years or until the applicant attains the age of 50 years, based on whichever of the two happens first. Given that riding/driving a motor vehicle without a driving licence is not allowed in the country, you should ensure that you renew your licence before its expiry date.
