Driving licence test questions

A total of 253 million registered vehicles have been reported in India by March 2017. The number is only increasing every day.

You, too, might have purchased a new car; but to drive your new car on Indian roads, you need to have a valid driving licence, which is mandatory as per the Motor Vehicles Act of 1988. As per recent reports, it is estimated that about 30% of driving licences in India are fake. However, you must be aware that not carrying a valid licence could lead to heavy fines and penalties. 

Learner’s licence test

The first and foremost step to applying for a permanent driving licence is to procure a learner’s licence. A learner’s licence helps you hone your driving skills and gives you practical experience to drive on Indian roads. To get your learner’s licence, you would need to give a theoretical exam. Your written exam will consist of a few learning licence test questions. Anyone above the age of 16 years can take this drivers licence test either online or offline at the nearest Road transport office (RTO).
