In the first part of this blog, Process Of Acquiring A Driving License For The Disabled In India- Part 1 we talked about registering your vehicle as an Invalid Carriage.
Now that that’s been done, you will first need to procure a learner’s licence.
How does one get this?
A driving school such as Ability On Wheels, Ahmedabad, can help you with the process. Should you wish to do it independently, here’s how.
You must go the the RTO website of your area.
In the Home menu, go to Apply Online,New Learners license.
Once you are on this page, furnish all the details required and follow the process mentioned. Approach the RTO Office again with all the printed forms. Don’t forget to carry the original RC book and it’s copy, Disability ID Card, Certificate and Driving Ability Certificate.
It’s imperative to take your vehicle for the LLR. The fee to get your Learner’s licence must be paid at the fee counter. Once this is done, see the inspector who will approve your forms. After the approval of your forms and the clicking of your photograph, you can (usually) download the LLR the same day from same website where you applied.
Now wait for a month. This is a routine waiting period for all forms of licenses.
If you belong to Gujarat, the driving school Ability On Wheels has helped several people with disabilities to get their driving licence and live a life of independence.
After the mentioned waiting period is over, you should go back to your state’s local RTO website and apply for a New License. If you have any additional endorsements such as a scooter licence, please make sure to attach those. Once this is done, repeat the process of filling up all the forms, upload all required scanned documents, and take print out of the forms. Take all your documents and visit the fee counter, pay the fee, meet the inspector, provide your driving test, get his approval, get the forms signed at the office and finally, take your photo. Now sit back and wait!
Your driving licence should arrive at your home soon.
