Steps for Renewal of Driver’s Licence

Most transport-related services can be availed from the RTO (Regional Transport Office) website.

On the website, for driving license renewal after the expiry of driver’s license, you have to select your state of residence. Once selected, you have to follow the steps given below:

  • Select “Apply Online” on the left side of the menu on Parivahan website Source:
  • Then, click on “Services on Driving license”
  • You will receive instructions on how to fill in your application form. Read them thoroughly before proceeding. Click ‘Next’ when you’re done.
  • Enter your Birth date and current license number and press “Go”
  • Next, you will come across “Required Services” which will display only those services which are applicable to your existing driving licence. You must select “Renewal” from the given options.
  • You will then be required to fill in any other relevant personal and/or vehicle-related details given in the form.
  • Once you follow all these steps, you will be redirected to an Acknowledgement page where you will be able to view your application ID (It is recommended that you print it). You will also receive an SMS on your registered mobile number with all the details.
  • You will need to visit the RTO and submit the required forms and documents.
  • Your documents will then undergo verification.
  • Upon verification, you will receive your license either on the same day or within a period of 15 days.

If you prefer not to go via the website route, you can collect the form from your nearest RTO. After you fill in the form and submit the required documents, the RTO officials will verify them. If you have applied for renewal at the same RTO from which you received your initial license, you should receive your renewed license within the same day. However, if you have applied at a different RTO, the process may take a couple of weeks.

Why Renew Your Driving Licence?

According to The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, it is mandatory to own a valid driver’s licence. It is an official document that is certified by the Indian Government as a legal proof to permit you to operate your vehicle on public roads.

It also means that the owner of the licence is well-acquainted with traffic regulations and rules. A fine of ₹5000 or/and imprisonment up to 3 months as a punishment on those driving without a valid driver’s licence is imposed under Section 177 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988.

Having a licence alone is not enough, though. Once expired, it is mandatory to renew it to legally drive your vehicle on public roads.
