Why Link Aadhaar to Driving Licence?

Have you ever wondered about the rationale behind linking Aadhaar card to driving licence? Aadhaar is the world’s biggest biometric identification system and is the biggest system ever to log hundreds of millions of citizens’ identities with their biometrics. Last year, it was made mandatory to link your Aadhaar card to a driving licence. The rationale behind this move was to curb the degree to which illegal activities occur on road due to a largely outdated system of identification and tracking.

11 Simple Steps on linking your Aadhaar to driving licence

But how to link your Aadhaar with your driving licence? Here is the good news: you can do it all by yourself, completely online. And here is a complete, step-by-step guide to link your Aadhaar card to your driving licence:

  1. Visit the road transport website of the state where you live/where the driving licence was issued. The relevant website for your state can be found at the beginning of the next section.
  2. Find the Link Aadhaar button on the website.
  3. Search the “Aadhaar Number Entry” option after clicking on the Link Aadhaar button.
  4. From the following drop down menu, click on the “Driving Licence” option.
  5. Enter your Licence number in the relevant field/s.
  6. Then, click on the “Get Details” button.
  7. Next, the details of your driving licence should appear on the screen. This should be followed by a couple of blank fields. These are to enter your Aadhaar and Mobile numbers.
  8. Enter your Aadhaar and your mobile number in the respective fields. (Note: you should use the mobile number linked with your Aadhaar at this step.)
  9. Re-check and submit the details you have provided.
  10. After submitting, an OTP will be sent to the registered mobile number for verification.
  11. Enter the OTP and your licence is now successfully linked with your Aadhaar

Benefits of linking Aadhaar with DL

There are several benefits of linking your Aadhaar card to your driving licence. First off, linking your Aadhaar to your driving licence prevents fake licences being in circulation and consequently in use. Since your Aadhaar has your biometrics logged against your ID, you cannot have two licences for the same person, neither can you obtain one without an Aadhaar card anymore. As a result, you can be certain that the traffic moving around and about you has trained and licenced drivers behind the vehicle’s wheels and handlebars. Fake licences have also been behind a number of hit and run cases in addition to fake citizenship and identification at hotels and bars.

Secondly, linking your Aadhaar to your driving licence makes sure that you cannot just commit a hit and run on the go. At the same time, since any person can be tracked through their biometrics, there are very slim chances that someone will take traffic offences lightly.

What’s more, you cannot even run away from fines that you might have incurred due to violation of traffic rules. Earlier, people would just obtain a new licence in case their fines were long overdue or if the fine amount was too high. With all your IDs and PAN card linked to your Aadhaar, it is very improbable that you will be able to wipe off that speeding ticket off your driver alias.
