RTO Andhra Pradesh and its district

The Regional Transport Office (RTO), Andhra Pradesh, is an organization established by the Indian government to administer certain functions related to road safety, vehicle registration, and driving licence. Working under the supervision of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, India, RTO is also known as the District Transport Office (DTO) or Regional Transport Authority (RTA).

The database of drivers and vehicles running in the state of Andhra Pradesh is maintained by the RTO office. This database is very important for identifying untaxed vehicles and owners of the vehicles. Such information is paramount in various cases, including when a vehicle enters an Indian state different from the one it is registered from or when a vehicle exceeds a road speed limit.
