GOOD NEWS! THERE IS NO LONGER A NEED TO VISIT THE RTO FOR DRIVER’S LICENCE RENEWAL AND 18 OTHER SERVICES; SEE THE FULL LIST HERE

On Thursday (March 4), the Ministry of Road and Transport Highways (MORTH) released a notification stating that citizens would no longer be required to visit the RTO office for as many as 18 services, including driver’s licence renewal, vehicle registration, and obtaining a learner’s licence, among others.

The contactless service based on Aadhaar authentication would provide people with easy and hassle-free services.

“A number of programmes, such as the issuance of a driver’s licence and a certificate of registration, are now available entirely online. These facilities can now be obtained without having to visit the RTO. Anyone can use these contactless services with Aadhaar authentication on a voluntary basis,” MORTH wrote on their official Twitter account.

The development comes after the Union government released a draught notification linking a driver’s licence and a registration certificate to the 12-digit unique identification number given to every Indian citizen.

“This will alleviate citizens’ enforcement burdens by allowing them to access these facilities in a hassle-free, contact-free manner. This will also minimize foot traffic in RTO offices, resulting in increased RTO office efficiency,” the ministry wrote in a separate Twitter message.

Below is the list of facilities people can access from the comfort of their own homes by using Aadhar authentication.

  • Learner’s licence
  • Renewal of driving licence for which test of competence to drive is not required
  • Duplicate driving licence
  • Change of address in driving licence and certificate of registration
