How to apply or renew your driving license online

Visiting the RTO office just to get a learner’s license or applying for a new driving license is a cumbersome process. To make things easier, the government of India has made an online portal that offers all the driving license-related services like applying for a learner’s or new license, changing address, renewal and more. Also, there’s an Aadhar eKYC method that saves the effort of filling in details in the form.

If you are wondering how to apply for a driving license online, all you need to do is follow our step-by-step guide:

But before applying for a new driving license, there are a few things you should know. First, you’ll need to apply for a learner’s license and once the learning license period is over, you can apply for the driving license. You’ll also need to pass the driving test to get your license.

So, if you already have a driving license, you can skip directly to step… If you don’t, here’s how you can apply for a learner’s license followed by a driving license. Read on:


Click on ‘Online services’ and choose ‘Driving License Related Services’


Click on ‘Online services’ and choose ‘Driving License Related Services’


On the next page, choose your state from the dropdown menu


Choose ‘Apply For Learner License’


Now, there are two things to note

If you choose to perform eKYC using an Aadhaar card then you won’t need to visit the RTO office to take the test. You can take a learner license test from your home. If you choose a non-Aadhaar eKYC method, then you will have to visit the RTO office to take the test


Choose Submit via Aadhaar Authentication and enter either your Aadhaar number or Virtual ID. You will receive an OTP on your registered mobile number. Enter it to continue.

In case you don’t see the Aadhaar authentication option, you can go for the non-Aadhaar eKYC method and proceed with the steps.


In the case of Aadhar eKYC, the page will automatically redirect you to the form where it will automatically retrieve your basic details from Aadhaar.

In other cases, you will first need to login using a phone number and OTP. Then, select the option ‘Applicant does not hold Driving/ Learner Licence’ and select the RTO (basically your current region like Agra, Gautam Budha Nagar, etc). Then click Submit.


Now, fill up the entire form, select vehicle type, choose whether your license has been revoked, cancelled or suspended before and hit Submit button

After this, it will redirect you to the payment process. Complete the payment, get the slip and then book the learner license slot.


For the online test, you will receive login details via SMS on your registered phone number. For the offline test, you’ll need to visit the RTO office and take the test.

Once everything goes well, your learner license will be approved. You can also download the learner’s license by clicking on the option Print Learner License from the Learner License drop-down menu.

Now, once you have the learner license, you can apply for a driving license after its validity is over. To do that, simply choose Apply For Driving License, select the state, enter learner license details and proceed. Follow the instructions to fill up the application and submit it.

You can’t beat RTO in their game . I applied for a learner license online and the question asked me for the license was that how many petrol pumps are there in India and how many deaths happen in India due to accidents 😄. And they failed me.
Then I took the help of a middleman and got my license without any questions.
