Get Driving License Without Any RTO Test! This Is How Getting DL Becomes Easier Now
The union road ministry has notified rules for accredited driver training centres where candidates will be provided high-quality driving courses, and once the test is cleared, they will be exempted from driving test at the time of obtaining a driving licence.
These training centres, the ministry said, will be equipped with simulators and dedicated driving tracks for candidates to undergo training.
Effective 1 July
Centres will also be allowed to provide industry-specific specialised training, it said, adding that the new rules will come into effect from July 1.
These training centres will be equipped with simulators and a dedicated driving test track to provide high-quality training to candidates, the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways (MoRTH) said.
These centres will be allowed to provide industry-specific specialised training as well, the ministry said, adding that shortage of skilled drivers is one of the major issues in the Indian roadways sector and a large number of road accidents occur due to lack of knowledge of road regulations.
An accreditation granted for accredited driver training centres shall be in force for five years and may be renewed.
Duration For LMVs And HMVs
The duration of a light motor vehicle driving course in accredited driver training centres is 29 hours over a maximum of four weeks from the date of course commencement, according to the notification, which adds that the course will be divided into theory and practice.
Also, the duration for medium and heavy motor vehicle driving course in accredited driver training centres is thirty-eight hours in six weeks.
“These are to be divided into two segments, theory and practical,” the notification said.
Drivers will also be taught some basic aspects about ethical and courteous behaviour with other road users.
