The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has made new rules for issuing a driving license. According to the new rules of 2021 for Making a Driving Licence, vehicle manufacturers’ associations, non-profit organizations and private companies will be allowed to run accredited driver training centres. They will now be able to issue a driving license on completion of the prescribed training.
According to the guidelines issued by the ministry on Wednesday, with this new facility, the process of issuing driving licenses by Regional Transport Offices (RTOs) will also continue.
In a statement issued on August 2, 2021, the ministry said that legitimate entities such as companies, NGOs, private establishments/automobile associations/automobile associations/autonomous bodies/private vehicle manufacturers are required to apply for accreditation of Driver Training Center (DTC) will be eligible.
Further, the statement said that the legitimate entities should have the necessary infrastructure/facilities on the land prescribed under the Central Motor Vehicles (CMV) Rules, 1989. The applicant will also have to show his financial capacity to manage sufficient resources to run the centre in the state or union territory.
According to the Driving Licence New Rules 2021, the State Governments will also have to give wide publicity to the provisions of the recognized Driver Training Centers and the accreditation mechanism. The ministry said that the designating authorities will complete the entire process of granting approval for recognition of DTC within 60 days from the date of submission of the application.
