Driving Licence Validity Extended Till March

Driving Licence Test Suspended In Delhi In The Wake Of COVID-19 Outbreak

According to the Transportation Department, the validity of learner’s licences was previously extended until January 31, 2022, and has now been extended further due to the cancellation of driving exams to prevent the spread of COVID-19’s third wave. “And whereas, it has come to notice that several learners licence holders have not been able to obtain the online appointment slots for their driving skill tests and there are many more applicants than the available driving tests slots. Therefore, the validity of those learner licences, including the heavy commercial vehicle driving licences, issued by the department whose validity has expired between February 1, 2020 to January 31, 2022, has been extended for two months,” he continued.

Driving Test Already Postponed

The Delhi government had earlier this month postponed driving licence examinations in the national capital due to an increase in Covid-19 cases. From January 6, 2022, all appointments for new and current driver’s licences, as well as learning licence tests, have been halted at all Regional Transport Offices (RTO) in Delhi.
