Candidates applied for license will now have to sit in front of camera while appearing for the learning permit exam from home. The decision is just an addition to the previous rule of giving online exams.
It has been taken to avoid cheating as anyone can appear for the exam, there is the possibility of blind and disabled also getting a driving license.
The Central government has made provision of taking ‘Faceless’ service using Aadhar card number. This has made getting learning license easy while sitting at home.
The candidate will have to fill up their Aadhar numbers on the website of trans port department. They will also have to fill up information asked and watch the video of road safety. Then they will have to appear for the exam.
After giving 60 per cent correct answers, printout of learning license is available. Hundreds of candidates have taken benefit of this facility. Even though this facility is best to avoid crowding in RTO office and sideline touts, the RTO has no watch on this exam. Some other person can appear for the exam for the candi date. The complaints in this regard were increasing.
The commissioner of transport department has started efforts to conduct learning license exam in front of camera. Such changes are being made in online system for driving permit.
A person appearing for others for the exam of learning license becomes ineligible for the license permanently as per Motor Vehicle Act.
There are orders for regional transport officers to take action in such cases. People have been appealed to make complaints against such malpractice.
