There are several types of driving licences that you can obtain in India. These include:
- A general driving licence.
- A licence for a motorcycle with gear.
- A licence for a motorcycle without gear.
- A licence for transport and commercial vehicles.
Determining your driving licence eligibility can be confusing, as each licence type comes with its own set of requirements. For instance, applicants who require a licence for motorcycles without gear must be at least 16 years of age and have parental or guardian consent, if applying as a minor. Meanwhile, a licence for operating motorcycles with gear has a higher age requirement.
In addition to age, there are also learning licence eligibility requirements. This means that those seeking permanent licences must hold a learner’s licence for a certain period of time before applying for the next level. They must also meet the examination eligibility requirements. Furthermore, some licences have educational requirements that must be met by applicants.
