FAQS on Driving License

 

Q. Do I need a new license, if I am moving to a new state ?

Answer - - A Driving License if issued in one state gives you eligibility to drive Car Pan India and thus has no need to apply for second driving license

Q. Where can i Download RTO LLD Form and Form 1 for Medical Fitness

Answer - You can visit this page to Download RTO Forms

Q. I am in new State, and lost my Old Driving License. Can I apply for New Driving License ?

Answer - Owning 2 Driving License is an Offence by law. So even if you have lost in your Old driving License, its not cancelled in RTO Records by itself. 
A DL Holder can only apply for new license only when the previous one is either expired or cancelled or NOC Obtained from the original RTO where Original DL was issued

Q. Why I can not get New License issued from the different RTO as I am staying in a different place than where my first DL was issued. Even in Passport its done easily

Answer – Unlike Passport where details held by National Authority. License details are held by the state authorities (RTO). There is no single PAN India database as of now as its governed under state rules. But – if you intend to use this as loophole to create a DL, then beware as digitalization of records is happening, once it merges you will be in trouble with fine for carrying 2 DL

Q. Is there any Driving test also needed for issuance of Duplicate DL

Answer – No there is no Driving test needed. Only the documents needs to be submitted for same

Q. How Much Time is needed for Issuance of New DL

Answer – Generally, the DL is sent by registered post within 2 weeks on your address

My DL got spoiled and looks distorted. This was issued from Ghaziabad - UP. I want a duplicate DL and there is NO change in any thing as the address, name, DOB etc remains the same. Do I have to visit the RTO in person ? Or the online submission of form and fee will ensure the making and delivery of the duplicate DL ? Please suggest

RTO Coimbatore Central has issued me driving License in which my photo looks like a Ghost. Recently at Airport the CISF rejected this as identity proof as the photo in license does not resemble me.
How to get a duplicate without payment because fault is of the Photographer of the RTO?
