Learning License in Bihar

In India, you are issued two types of driving licences: A learner's licence and a permanent licence. They are both mandated legal documents under the Motor Vehicle Act of 1988, but you can only hold one of the two at any given time.

To put it simply, all vehicle owners and prospective motorists must apply for a Bihar learner licence first and then proceed to apply for a permanent licence.

Thankfully, the registration process for a learning driving licence in Bihar is fairly straightforward and can be done either online or offline. Read on to learn how you can get your learning licence in Bihar.

What is a Bihar Learner's Licence?

A learner's licence is a temporary driving licence that is valid for up to 6 months upon issuance. These are issued by Regional Transport Offices (RTOs) after you successfully complete their STALL test, i.e., the learner's licence (LL) test.

It should be noted that you can only apply for a driving licence in Bihar if you have held your LL permit for 30 days.

Moreover, LL permit holders must have a red 'L' painted on a plate/card with a white background on the front and rear of their vehicle. For those learning how to drive two-wheelers, they can only take their driving teacher along as a pillion rider.

Types of Bihar Learner Licences

You can get a learning licence in Bihar for several vehicle types, such as:

Two-wheelers (Bikes, scooters, mopeds, etc., with and without gear)

Commercial/Transport Vehicles (Buses, taxis, auto-rickshaws, goods carriers, etc.)

Light Motor Vehicles (LMVs) (Cars, omnibuses, vans and other vehicles under 7500 kg)

Heavy Goods Vehicle (Tractors, road rollers and other vehicles exceeding 12,000 kg, unloaded)

Invalid Carriages/Adapted Vehicles.

Other Vehicles with specific descriptions not included in the list above.

Importance of Motor Insurance in Bihar

Motor insurance in Bihar is about as important as your learner's permit. They are both legally mandated documents you must have on hand when on the road.

If you are caught driving an uninsured vehicle, you will be subject to an E-Challan in Bihar, which can amount to ₹2,000 and can go up to ₹4,000 for subsequent offences. In more extreme cases, it can also result in imprisonment of up to 3 months.

Hence, if you do have bike insurance or any other form of motor insurance, ensure that it stays in effect at all times. One way to do this is to buy two-wheeler insurance online at Tata AIG since we offer online renewals.

A key reason why we offer two-wheeler insurance renewals online is that it is much easier to maintain an online bike insurance policy. You simply need to enter your bike registration number and click renew!

So, if your bike insurance policy is expiring soon, now is the perfect time to make the switch to an online insurer like us. Feel free to check our two-wheeler plans to find your perfect match!


A Bihar learner licence is the first step in your journey to acquiring a permanent driving licence. The entire application process can be done online, including taking the LL test. This means you can submit your application, pass the test and download your learner's permit from the comfort of your home.

Moreover, always ensure road safety and legal compliance as a fellow motorist by applying for and having all of the necessary documents related to your vehicle on hand. This ensures you can avoid being unnecessarily fined by traffic authorities.
