All motor vehicles are required to be registered under a Regional Transport Office (RTO) that is located in the vehicle owner’s area of residence or business before it can be used in public places. This registration certificate is valid only in the state that it has been registered in. If the vehicle owner permanently relocates to another state, the vehicle will have to be re-registered under an RTO in the state that the concerned individual has moved to. The process to re-register your two-wheeler is as follows:
If you plan to relocate to another state and take your two-wheeler along with you, you should first obtain a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the RTO under which your vehicle is currently registered. To do so, you should submit an application (Form 28) to the Regional Transport Office. You should also submit the documents given below with your application form:
*Note: This is a general list of documents that you may be asked to submit when applying for an NOC. Based on the RTO rules, you may have to submit other documents, as well.
Once you submit the required documents to the RTO, the concerned authorities will verify your documents and issue the NOC to you.
Once you obtain an NOC, you can re-register your two-wheeler in the state that you have moved to. To re-register your vehicle, you will need to approach the RTO in your jurisdiction and submit an application for the same. Keep in mind that you will be able to use your two-wheeler in the new state only after getting the vehicle re-registered. You will need to submit the following documents to the RTO to re-register your two-wheeler:
Once you submit the application form along with the above-mentioned documents and complete the required formalities, the RTO will issue a new registration certificate.
Keep in mind that if you are temporarily relocating to another state, you do not have to get your vehicle re-registered. Re-registration is only required if you intend to reside in the place that you have relocated to for over 12 months. The registration certificate, once it is issued, is valid for a period of 15 years. After this period, the vehicle owner will need to get the vehicle re-registered at the same RTO under which it was registered.
According to a directive passed by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways Deputy Secretary Ramandeep Chowdhary, one does not require a No-Objection Certificate (NOC) from a Regional Transport Office (RTO) to get their driving license renewed.
Chowdhury said that earlier the requirement to obtain an NOC was to ensure that the renewed driving license was authentic in nature. The practice was adopted during the time when the software version of SARATHI was not operational. However, with the software version of SARATHI being fully functional, one does not require to obtain an NOC as all the information mentioned on the driving license are easily verified and is available on the database online, hence ruling out the need to obtain an NOC.
