The Indian Government has once again extended the validity of driving licenses and vehicle documents till the 31st of September 2021.

The Ministry of Road Transport & Highways has made a few changes to the rules concerning the Driver Training Centers and the issuance of driving license. Earlier, it was mandatory for the candidates to undergo a driving test at RTOs before the final license was given to them. Currently, as per the recent release by MoRTH, candidates who successfully pass the test at these eligible centres need not give the driving test being conducted at the Regional Transport Office (RTO).

“Taking into consideration the grim situation still continuing due to conditions for prevention of spread of COVID-19 across the country, it is advised that the validity of all of the above referred documents whose extension of validity could not be, or was not likely to be, granted due to lock-down and/or COVID -19 and which had expired since 1st of Feb, 2020 or would expire by 30th June 2021, the same may be treated to be valid till 30th June, 2021.

Besides these, the ministry had earlier issued advisories dated 30th March, 2020, 9th June, 2020, 24th August 2020 and 27th December 2020 to all States and Union Territories with respect to the extension of validity of the documents related to Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 and Central Motor Vehicle Rules, 1989.
