    The main aim of the Uttarakhand Transport Department is to enhance transport services across the state. It takes charge of issuing permits for vehicles, collecting taxes, licensing drivers and helping the public to register their vehicles. You can also renew your Registration Certificate (RC), apply for a duplicate RC, and transfer the ownership of your vehicle via the transport department.

    Why new vehicles should be registered?

    As per the Motor Vehicle Act, 1988, you cannot ride or drive a vehicle on public roads without a valid registration certificate. If you purchase a new two-wheeler, you have to register it as well as purchase an insurance policy as riding without insurance is also an offence.

    How to register new vehicles?

    The registration process is quite simple and easy. You need to submit an application form to the Registering Authority in the state within 7 days from the date of vehicle purchase. Even two-wheeler dealers can register a new vehicle on your behalf. You can submit the relevant documents to the dealer who will submit those at the respective Regional Transport Office (RTO) to register your vehicle. Once the documents are verified, the RTO will send the RC book or Smart Card to your home address through mail.
