Driving Licence Renewal Documents

In India, as per the Motor Vehicles Act 1988 and the Central Motor Rules, 1989, you must carry your driving licence at all times when you are using your vehicle. Also, a driving licence is valid for a period of 20 years or till a person turns 50, whichever comes earlier. Driving without a licence is an offence, thus making it important to get your driving licence renewed as soon as possible. 

Read on to know more about driving licence renewal, the application form needed and documents required for driving licence renewal. 

Driving Licence Renewal Form

The first thing you may have to do is get hold of a driving licence renewal form. You can download the driving licence renewal form by visiting the website (parivahan.gov.in/parivahan/) of the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways belonging to the Government of India. The form is also available at your nearest RTO. On the website, you can check out the menu under online services, which will take you to driving licence related services. You could select the state from where you need the service, and choose your nearest RTO. Then, you would need to use the menu under driving licence, where there’s a section for services on driving licence which includes renewal and duplicate, among others. You will be led to the application services section, where you can download your driving licence renewal form. You would need to submit your driving licence number and other details. 

Driving licence renewal documents

Wondering about driving licence renewal documents required? If you are applying online for renewal, you would need to input your Aadhaar number, your mobile number and other details. You would also need the following documents:

  • Fitness certificate: This is a form that can be downloaded from the RTO website or you could contact your local RTO for the same. You would need to get a certificate from a certified medical practitioner who says you are fit to drive the vehicle. The fact that you already have a DL and you are only applying for renewal doesn’t mean you can avoid this document. This is to make sure that you are medically fit at this point in time to drive. 

  • Driving licence: Your expired licence is one of the major documents required for driving licence renewal. Basic details are fetched from here before the process of renewal begins. 

  • Proof of age: One of the important driving licence renewal documents you need is the one that proves your age. Age is an important aspect of obtaining your licence, so you may need to furnish your Aadhaar card which is considered a valid proof. 

  • Proof of address: You would need to have proof of where you stay to apply for driving licence renewal. Your passport or Aadhaar card, ration card, voters ID card or electricity bill issued in your name could act as proof of address. You may even furnish your self-owned home related documents, a rental agreement, electricity bill or your LPG bill for the same. You could check with your local RTO for what is acceptable. 

  • No objection certificate: If you are shifting to another state within India, you would need to get an NOC from the RTO which issued your driving licence originally. This could be done online as well by heading to the parivahan website which will take you to the Issue of NOC as a DL service. Before that you may have to enter your present address and the second address which is your permanent one. The NOC will be sent to your home RTO, from where you would have to obtain it. 

  • Photographs: You would also need to submit passport-sized photographs with the other documents required for driving licence renewal and the application form for renewal. 

Once you have all the documents ready, you could upload them online via the parivahan website or you could visit your local RTO with the documents. Make sure to provide authentic information and fill your forms carefully so you save a lot of time and effort and finish the process in one go. After your documents and forms are examined, the RTO issues the renewed licence. There are fees for driving licence renewal and these could vary from state to state or over time. 

Summing up

If your licence is due for renewal anytime soon, start checking all the documents you need beforehand and get the renewal done in time so you can continue to drive. Driving without a licence in India is a punishable offence.
