Possessing a valid driving licence is mandatory in India. The fees associated with the same vary based on the type of licence you require, your application status, and the type of vehicle in concern.


In India, you will have to pay a fee of Rs.200 for a learner’s licence, renewal of a learner’s licence, driving licence, and renewal of a driving licence. If you wish to opt for an international driving licence, you will be required to shell out Rs.1,000. Additionally, to take the driving licence test, you will have to pay a fee of Rs.300.

Driving Licence Fee Structure

Applying for a driving licence affords different fees depending on various factors. According to your status, and the status of the licence you want, the fees may be different. Additionally, the kind of vehicle you drive also matters. In case you drive a light motor vehicle (a car, for instance), your driving licence fees may be different from that obtained for driving a heavy motor vehicle (say, a truck). With different fees attached to different kinds of driving status, such as driving licence renewal fees, or permanent driving licence fees, it is important to find out the fee structure for each.


Considerations when learning about driving licence fees and the details of fee structure relate to the kind of vehicle you are driving, but primarily to the status of the driver and the purpose of driving. For instance the driving licence fees for an international driving licence will be different from that of a permanent licence to drive within India. Moreover, international driving licence fees will be more than that of learning licence fees, or permanent licence fees to drive within India. Here is a table that displays the different fee structure of various licences:
