Get DL Without Appearing For Test
New Delhi: A driving licence (DL) test, the only obstacle that stands between you and a piece of paper granting you permission to drive a vehicle, will soon be a distant memory with the government evolving a new mechanism.
In order to impart quality driver training to the citizens to reduce road accidents in the country, the Central government has been planning to provide accreditation certificates to driver training centres in all states and Union Territories (UTs) by the end of this year.
Those who will receive successful driver training from such centres will be “exempted from the requirement of driving test while applying for a driving licence”.
But the certificates will be provided to such institutes or training centres after they would achieve certain standards.
The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has initiated the move so as to improve driving excellence in order to save thousands lives during road accidents every year.
The Ministry in this regard has issued a draft notification regarding accreditation of driver training centres.
“…The Ministry has proposed detailed requirements to be met and procedures to be followed by such training centres before providing them accreditation,” said a Ministry notification.
Further, the Ministry has also provided that, any individual on successful completion of driver training from such centres, will be “exempted from the requirement of driving test while applying for a driving licence”.
