Getting a Driving License in Gujarat

With heavy industrialization in Gujarat, there has been an increase in the issuance of driving licenses (DL) in the state. A driving license can be issued after registration with the RTO giving legal permission to drive a vehicle. It can be issued for any type of vehicle - heavy vehicles, two-wheelers, and four-wheelers.

In this blog, you will find every relevant detail regarding driving license issuance in Gujarat.

Who is eligible for a driving license?

A driving license can be issued at different ages for different vehicles, which have been discussed below.

• People aged 16 years old are eligible to apply for a license for a two-wheeler without gears.

• For two-wheelers with gear, four-wheelers, tractors, or non-transport vehicles, people need to be at least 18 years old.

• To be eligible for driving heavy transport vehicles, an individual must be at least 20 years old and has passed the 8th standard.

What are the documents required for the application?
