Coronavirus in India: Validity of expired driving licences, vehicle registration extended till June 30


The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has extended the validity of documents like driving licenses, permits and registration that expired since February 1.

The ministry has said the validity of all permits, driving licences and registrations or other documents which have expired since February 1 or will expire by June 30, will be treated valid until June 30.

The ministry informed about the decision in an advisory to all states and union territories.

The decision was taken to facilitate people facing difficulties in renewing the validity of various motor vehicle documents due to nationwide lockdown in the country and closure of government transport offices.

The documents include fitness, permits (all types), driving licence, registration or any other concerned document under the Motor Vehicle Rules.

The ministry has requested all states to implement the advisory in “letter and spirit” so that the people and transporters and organisations rendering essential services do not get harassed and face difficulties.
