Until September 30: No penalties for driving with expired licenses or other documents

Until 30th September, the Center has prolonged the validity of drivers’ licenses, car registration certificates, fitness certificates, and all forms of licenses expiring after February 2020, because of the limits imposed to control the Covid-19 epidemic. In an advisory issued on Thursday, the Union’s road and highway ministries used documents that had expired in February of the previous year to direct transport departments not to prosecute motorists and car drivers.

Driving without a valid license carries an Rs. 5,000/-, while other invalid documents carry fines of 5,000 (registration certificate), 10,000 (permit), and Rs. 2,000 – 5,000/- (fitness certificate) respectively. Officials have underlined that the validity of expired Pollution Under Control certifications will not be extended. 

The state transportation department has been flooded with requests for driver’s licenses, fitness certifications, and permit renewals. Only about 80 tests are performed every day now. The number of learners’ license online examinations has dropped to 50 per day, stated the department. A second transport official highlighted social distancing conventions as a reason for capping the number of daily driving tests at RTOs. “As a result, demand is significantly higher. We’re also attempting to raise awareness of the Central Government’s recent relaxation of regulations for expired transportation papers. As a result, there’s no need to worry and rush to the RTOs to renew your license right now. “
