The MoRTH announced " Certain services regarding Driving License and Certificate of Registration have been made completely online. Now, these services can be availed without going to RTO. With Aadhaar authentication, on a voluntary basis, anyone can get the benefit of these contactless services," in the notification.

No More RTO Visits: Now Renew Driving License Using Aadhaar Authentication

Aadhaar Authentication is the process of submitting an Aadhaar number, along with demographic or biometric information, to the Central Identities Data Repository (CIDR) for verification, and the CIDR verifies the correctness, or lack thereof, based on the information available.

The development comes after the Union government released a proposed notification linking a driver's licence and a registration certificate to the 12-digit unique identification number given to every Indian citizen.

There will be a total of 18 facilities covered. The new framework, according to the ministry, would "simplify government delivery processes while also bringing accountability and quality."

These are the 18 services that can be done using Aadhaar authentication:

1. Learner's licence

2. Renewal of driving licence for which test of competence to drive is not required

3. Duplicate driving licence

4. Change of address in driving licence and certificate of registration


5. Issue of international driving permit

6. Surrender of a class of vehicle from licence

7. Application for temporary registration of the motor vehicle

8. Application for registration of the motor vehicle with a fully built body

9. Application for issue of duplicate certificate of registration

10. Application for grant of NOC for a certificate of registration
