Driving License Expired? Know The Documents Needed For The Renewal Of Your Driving License

208

Driving without a valid driving license is an offense in India. If your license has expired, driving with it is as good as driving without a license. Therefore, it is important to renew your license before it expires to avoid any penalties.

A permanent driving license in India is valid for a period of 20 years, or till the time the driver reaches the age of 50. To renew the driving license, you will have to submit an application at the nearest RTO. You could also submit the same online. In case of private drivers, the renewed license is issued within a day.

In case your driving license has already expired, you get a 30 day grace period during which you can renew the license without paying any fine. Once the grace period has elapsed, you will have to pay a fine of 1000 along with all applicable fees.
