Things To Know About DL in Delhi

Your Delhi driving licence will apply anywhere in India. Meaning once you get your driver's licence, you are permitted to drive anywhere in India for the duration of its validity. However, you pass the eligibility criteria: You must be 18 years or older to apply for a personal driver's licence in Delhi. If you are over 40, you must pass a medical examination and submit a medical certificate.

Once issued, your driving licence will be valid for up to 20 years or until you reach 50, after which you must renew it periodically. On the other hand, commercial licences need to be renewed every three years.

Any applications for DL renewals must be applied at least 30 days before the expiration date. If you exceed your grace period, you will be charged a penalty fee when you do decide to renew. This fine amount will vary depending on how much you have exceeded the grace period.

Lastly, a driver's licence is mandatory for anyone wishing to drive their vehicle in Delhi, and a government-approved licencing authority must issue it. If you are caught driving without a valid DL or an expired one, you can be subject to penalties, fines or even imprisonment of up to 3 months, depending on your circumstances.

The Need for Motor Insurance In Delhi

Delhi is a high-traffic city hosting a wide variety of on-road vehicles. Being the capital city, it also attracts numerous visitors each year. This can be great for its economic growth; however, more vehicles on the road also means more accidents and an increase in traffic density.

Moreover, most on-road vehicles seen on Delhi roads are two-wheelers. So if you are a bike owner, it is important for you to get a third-party bike insurance policy. Not only is it mandatory it also offers legal and financial protection against third-party liabilities.

Today it is fairly easy to get insurance for your bike as most insurance providers, including us at Tata AIG, offer 2-wheeler insurance online. You simply need to visit our site, choose your plan and present your KYC documents and your online driving licence details.

For newer vehicles, we recommend purchasing comprehensive two-wheeler insurance plans first, as they provide more coverage and give you access to additional rider plans for additional coverage. These can be essential for high-risk cities like Delhi, where accidents and minor collisions can be commonplace.


As a licence holder in Delhi, your driver's licence provides essential information regarding its validity, the expiration date, your biodata and much more. It acts as an identity proof document when you are on the road, and it is mandatory.

A DL application status check allows you to track your application status for renewals or new DL applications. In simple terms, it allows you to check if everything is progressing as it should be. Thankfully, the Indian government has digitised this process, so it can be done fully online, mitigating the need for multiple RTO visits.

So be sure to follow the steps mentioned above to check your DL status in Delhi or ensure a smooth and stress-free application process.
