Obtaining a driving licence in Telangana involves fulfilling certain eligibility criteria, passing written and practical tests, and adhering to the traffic rules and regulations set by the state. Here is everything you should know about getting an offline or online driving licence in Telangana.

Types of Driving Licences in Telangana

There are different types of driving licences issued by the Regional Transport Authority (RTA) based on the class of vehicles individuals are eligible to operate. Here are the main types of driving licences in Telangana:

 

  • Commercial Driving Licence (CDL): A commercial driving licence is required for individuals who wish to drive commercial or transport vehicles. This includes buses, taxis, goods carriers, and other vehicles used for commercial purposes. Additional tests and qualifications are necessary to obtain a CDL.

  • Learner's Licence (LL): A learner's licence is a provisional licence that allows individuals to learn how to drive. It is issued for both motorcycles with gear (MCWG) and light motor vehicles (LMV). Learner's licences have certain restrictions, such as displaying a red "L" symbol on the vehicle and being accompanied by a licensed driver.

  • Permanent Driving Licence (DL): Once individuals have gained sufficient driving skills and knowledge, they can apply for a permanent driving licence. Permanent licences are issued for various vehicle categories, including motorcycles, LMVs, heavy motor vehicles (HMVs), transport vehicles, and more. The licence class depends on the type of vehicle for which the individual has qualified.

  • International Driving Permit (IDP): An International Driving Permit is issued to individuals who plan to drive in foreign countries. It acts as a translation of the domestic driving licence and is valid in countries that are part of the Geneva Convention on Road Traffic.

 

It's important to note that each type of driving licence has specific eligibility criteria, documentation requirements, and test procedures. Aspiring drivers in Telangana should consult the RTA or visit their official website for detailed information and to ensure compliance with the necessary regulations.
