As the joint capital of Punjab and Haryana, the city is also a Union Territory in India, and therefore has its own Transport Department that handles the issuing of the all-important document that is a driving license. In a process that is automated and made available online to a large extent, residents can obtain the permission to operate a motorized vehicle through the Chandigarh Administration's transport department.
A driving license is issued through the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, granted through the numerous Registering and Licensing Authority's offices situated across the region. Chandigarh's transport department has digitalized most of the process, ensuring that the minimum possible time is spent in the RLA. With increasing number of cases regarding fake licenses occurring, it is important to remember that only these authorities are capable of issuing original licenses.

Eligibility for getting a Driving License

  • Prior to obtaining the driving license, a learning license is issued for a temporary period during which you are expected to learn how to drive the motorized vehicle completely.
  • A learning license issued in Chandigarh is only valid within the limits of the administration as stated on the license, whereas a permanent driving license is valid across the country.
  • To be able to apply for a driving license, the candidate must be at least 16 years of age for two wheeler vehicles.
  • You must be at least 18 years of age to apply for a license for four wheeled vehicles, with or without gears.
  • Any able bodied citizen, regardless of gender, caste, etc. can obtain a license.
  • Commercial licenses are generally issued for those above the age of 20 only.
