Currently, state governments are working on ways to ease out the process of applying and taking a test for a learner’s driving license.

Recent reports reveal that the Maharashtra government has issued two directives to the state’s 50 RTOs.

Getting Learners License At Home

According to these directives, people are allowed to obtain a learner’s license by sitting for a test from home using an Aadhaar-based authentication mechanism.

Prior to this, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) had released a notification In March.

This notification allowed certain services to be availed completely online via Aadhar authentication.

It mainly included a driving license and Certificate of Registration.

While shading more light on the subject, an official said, “Annually, Maharashtra’s transport department issues around 20 lakh learner’s licenses and an equal number of cars and bikes in the non-transport category are registered in the state. Necessary changes were made by National Informatics Centre (NIC) in Vahan 4.0 and Sarathi 4.0 systems used for vehicle registration and driving license issuance across the country,”.

How To Apply For A Learner’s License Test From Home In Maharashtra?

1) For getting a learner’s license, applicants will need to provide their Aadhaar card number before giving an online test sitting at home, as per the state government directive.

2) Individuals can apply for a learner’s license test, in which he or she must answer rightly at least 60 percent of questions.

3) After passing the test, one can then print a learner’s license on their own.

For the new online method, the government also advises the applicants to watch some videos on road safety before taking the test for a license.

Registering Non-Transfer Vehicles

Apart from getting a learner license, now dealers can register non-transport vehicles without taking them physically to Regional Transport Offices, Maharashtra Transport Commissioner Avinash Dhakane told PTI.

With these new services, people will no longer need to visit regional transport offices (RTOs) for services such as vehicle registration, learner’s permit, renewal of driver’s license, duplicate RC and more.

These new services are expected to bring huge socio-economic benefits and reduce footfalls at RTOs.

It will also weed out illegal agents and reduce corruption while decreasing the burden on staff and saving time and money for citizens.
