Driving Licence in Ahmedabad

Driving license is a license that is needed for driving a four wheeler of any kind in a particular area or city or state and even country. An individual needs to be a professional driver in order to hold a permanent license for driving.

How to apply for driving license in Ahmedabad

In India, people can get driving licenses’ very easily but it would be a great problem to get a driving license abroad because there are certain rules and regulations that are quite difficult to manage abroad. In India, a person who seeks a driving license needs to clear one practical and one written test that is considered to be enough for the attainment of permanent driving license. 

But the situation is completely opposite abroad where an individual intending to get a driving license has to clear a number of tests and failing in the tests would require an individual to reappear again and again. 

In India and in several states of India, the rules and regulations pertaining to traffic are not very strict in comparison to the western countries and it is only because of this reason that getting a driving license in India or in any state of India is not a big deal. There are many car drivers in India who are not completely aware of the traffic rules that they need to maintain but there are some important rules that are required to be followed in getting a driving license even in India.

General Rules for the License

There is a specific process that an individual needs to go through while trying to behold a driving licence and this process is the same in various parts of India. Gujarat is one of the largest states in India and Ahmedabad is a city that speaks of the culture and the beauty of Gujarat. Ahmedabad is famous for its industries and its people. Due to the emergence of a number of industries in Ahmedabad, the people over here are mainly businessmen who deal in various kinds of small and large businesses. 

Every individual in Ahmedabad, barring a few, owns a four wheeler but it is not important that all of them would be aware of the traffic rules and would be able to drive safely. Such people also get a driving license in Ahmedabad because of the fact that the rules and the process of getting a driving license in Ahmedabad is not very strict and tough. The process of getting a driving license is the same throughout India and the same applies for Ahmedabad also.

The very first thing that is needed to be done in getting a permanent driving license in Ahmedabad is clearing the written exam which consists of objective type questions based on the rules of traffic. If this exam is cleared successfully, an individual gets the learning license which is valid only for a period of six months. 

Within the time span of six months, an individual needs to learn the process of driving in order to clear the practical exam that can be applied for, once an individual is able to learn the skills of driving quite successfully. A police professional is assigned to take the practical exam and this is done by the driving licence authority. Every state in India has a separate authority for the issue of driving license and the very first thing that an individual should know is the authority that issues driving license in their state or area.
