Need for the Document[edit]

As per the Indian Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, it is mandatory for drivers of any vehicle to hold a valid driving licence to drive a vehicle on the road. A Driving licence is an official document issued by the government, which authorises an individual to drive a category of vehicle for which he holds a licence. It is a must to renew your DL after its expiry because as per the law nobody in India can drive any vehicle without a valid DL.

Information which might help[edit]

  • As per Section 177 of the Motor Act, 1988, if a person is driving a vehicle without a valid DL (i.e an expired DL), is a punishable offence by law. Violators of the same are liable to be fined. An expired driving licence is valid only for a month (i.e 30 days) post expiration and can needs to be renewed within that grace period. If your driving licence has expired more than 30 days ago, you can renew the same by paying a penalty. This holds true if only the application requesting a renewed DL is made within a time span of five years from the date of expiry. If the licence has been initially obtained from another state, then the applicant should furnish a No Objection Certificate (N.O.C.) and confirmation of driving licence issued by the original licensing authority.
  • As per Section 9 (a)(i) of Motor Vehicles Act 1988, one can get his driving license renewed provided the applicant has previously held a driving license to drive such class of vehicle and that the period between the date of expiry of that license and the date of application does not exceed five years.
  • Further, as per Section 8 (1) (i) of the said act, he can apply to the licensing authority having jurisdiction in the area in which he ordinarily resides or carries on business.
  • Application for renewal of driving license can be made within 30 days from the date of expiry of driving license.
