How to obtain a learner driving license in India in easy way

As we know to learn the driving, first we needs to obtain a learner’s driving licence for the vehicle. A learner’s licence allows us to learn driving with a regular and experienced driver of our choice.

If we want to drive a motor car or a two-wheeler then we should be along with a friend, relative or an instructor of a driving school who holds a valid driving Licence.

If we wish to become a professional driver and drive commercial, passenger or goods vehicles, we will have to get our self trained at a driving school duly recognized by the Transport Department.

Learner’s licence is valid through-out the India for a period of 180 days only during which one should get his permanent licence for that category. In case of expiry of the learner’s licence, the applicant needs to repeat the same process.
