Driving License

 

  What is a Driving License and Why is it Necessary ?

 

A Driving License is an official document certifying that the holder is suitably qualified to drive a motor vehicle or vehicles. Under the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 in India, no person can drive a motor vehicle in any public place unless he holds a valid Driving License issued to him, authorising him to drive a vehicle of that particular category.

 

In India, two kinds of Driving Licenses are issued: Learnerís License and Permanent License. Learnerís License is valid only for six months. Permanent License can be availed only after the expiry of one month from the date of issuance of the Learnerís License.
