Purchasing a new car can be a great experience. It is one of the most important feelings of life, and one cannot wait to get their car out and make the most of the comforts of owning a car. But, after you receive your car, there are a few things you need to understand so that you can avoid getting into legal trouble.

One of the things that you need to have before you drive your car is a temporary car registration number. Before we get into the details of the temporary registration number, there is another important document that you need to have as soon as you buy a car. It is a car insurance policy. As per the Indian Motor Vehicles law, you must have third-party car insurance to legally drive your car on the road.

Tata AIG offers car insurance plans at affordable prices, and there are a number of plans for you to choose from. You can opt for third-party liability-only car insurance, a comprehensive car insurance policy, or your own damage cover depending upon your needs. It is easy to simply go online and buy car insurance from our website. Also, the process of a car insurance claim is easy, and you can also get help from our experts if the need arises.

Now, let us get into the details of the temporary car registration number.

What is a Temporary Registration Number?

A temporary number in India is a number that is used as an identification for a new car that has not been registered permanently with the Regional Transport Office. According to the law, having a permanent car registration number is mandatory to drive your car on the road. But, the permanent number might take some time to come, so a temporary car registration number is issued.

In most cases, the temporary number in India is provided by the showroom or dealer you have bought the vehicle from. If this is not the case, then you need to apply for the temporary vehicle registration number yourself. According to the temporary registration rules, if you do not have a temporary vehicle registration number plate, you will be issued a challan, and you might even be fined.

The temporary registration validity is one month. But, if your permanent car registration number has not been issued, you can get your temporary registration validity extended.

How Can You Apply for a Temporary Registration Number Plate?

Here are the steps to apply for a temporary number plate:

  1. You have to download Form number 20 so that you can apply for a temporary number in India.

  2. All the details must be filled in Form 20.

You will also need to give a certain period of time for which you want the extension. Also, you will have to pay charges for getting the validity extended.

So, always ensure that you follow all the rules while you are driving and also drive safely.
