Learner’s Driving licence in Delhi

According to the Times of India, among all states across the country, Delhi has the highest fatal road accidents, with 5 deaths every day. Moreover, according to the statistics compiled by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, it was estimated that the increase in road accidents leading to death has been increasing phenomenally for the last few years. With Indian cities giving more importance to high-speed roads, violation of rules has increased with a steady decline in ensuring the safety of everyone.

Bad conduct on-road and paying no heed to the traffic rules and regulations has been one of the greatest reasons why mishaps on road occur. Hence, before providing you directly with a driving licence, the Road and Transport Office first assigns a learning licence to you. To curb the statistics of accidents on the road, you are first given a learner’s driving licence to practice on the ground and on-road as a learner.
