Driving license New Rules.

The Driving License New Rules 2022 goes into effect on July 1, allowing only private driving centers to be operated, either by the state transport authority or the central government. These training centers are valid for a period of five years. Then you must renew with the government. The government’s action may result in a separate industry of private training school.

According to Department of Roads and Transport regulations, anyone who has passed driving exam at a state-accredited driving training center is exempt from taking the driving test at the RTO when applying for a driver’s license. This means you won’t have to take the RTO driving test. The private driver training center certificate is the only basis for your driver’s license.

This new approach would also help in eradicating the bureaucracies that shroud regional transport authorities. Better drivers would mean fewer accidents. A private driving school would only get state accreditation once these checks and analysis have been made by the government.
