Now no need to visit Regional Transfer (RTO) Office to renew your license as the service now moves online. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MORTH) notified Aadhar-based authentication for as many as 18 services which will now be made available online via Aadhar authentication.
Other services such as temporary registration of vehicles will also be accessible online.
The development comes after the Union government issued a draft notification for linking driving licence and RC with the 12-digit unique identity number assigned to every Indian citizen.
The move will be beneficial as the long queues at RTOs will reduce.
These services which can now be availed by citizens by the comfort of their homes include:
Learner’s license, Renewal of driving license for which test of competence to drive is not required Duplicate driving license, Change of address in driving license Certificate of Registration, issue of international driving permit Surrender of class of vehicle from license Application for temporary registration of a motor vehicle, Application for registration of a motor vehicle with a fully built body.
