The Test :
The book on Rules of the Road Regulations is given to the applicant at the time he receives the form. At the time of submission of the form, he will be questioned on traffic rules, signs and signals. If his answers are satisfactory, he will be given the Temporary Driving License, otherwise not.

Obtaining the Learner's License :
If the candidate passes the oral test on the Rules of The Road Regulations, he is required to collect his Learner's License from the office of the Regional Transport Officer(RTO).

The Learner's License allows you to drive the vehicle you have applied for, but only with someone beside you, who is a license holder.

The sign 'L' should definitely be painted on the back and front of the vehicle in red to alert other road users.

Period of Learner's License :
This learner's license is valid for a period of 6 months after which another application would be needed. The permanent license can be obtained after a period of 1 month of having acquired the learner's license, if the applicant so wishes.

The Finale...

Way to the Permanent License :

The required Fees :
Rs.60 for one category of vehicle.
Rs.15 for additional categories.
Rs. 55 for additional endorsement in existing license.

The candidate must make sure he is well versed in driving by now and is ready for a test drive.

The following documents are needed at this stage :
1. Form 4
2. Original Driver's License

At the time of getting the Permanent License, the applicant must bring along with him/her the category of vehicle for which he has applied for license.

The next step is a driving test by an expert who is the final arbiter in this respect. A pass here means that the form will be stamped "Test Passed" and directed for Permanent Driving License to the License Issuing Authority. For obtaining the laminated Driving License, the applicant will have to present himself/herself at the concerned RTO's office on the day specified by the AASI for the purpose.
