NEW DELHI: The road transport ministry has notified a new rule that will allow you to get a driving licence after successfully undergoing training at any accredited driver training centre and you won’t need to undertake a driving test at any RTO.
The catch is that you have to complete the training and pass the test, which needs to be recorded electronically for audit.
“This entire process will be tech-driven and without any human interference. The accreditation will be given to centres that meet the criteria of space, driving track, IT and biometric system and carry out the training as per prescribed syllabus. Once the centre issues a certificate, it will reach the motor vehicle licence officer concerned,” said an officer.
The rules will come into force from July, which means people and institutions interested in running such facilities for driver training can start applying to state governments.
