Department of Driver Training & Road Safety Education

What are the pre-requisites of obtaining a drivers license?

As per the provisions in the Indian Legislation, applicants for a driving license should have undergone a minimum of 28 days of training and should have extensive knowledge of all the 40 driving regulations, 16 Sections of the Motor Vehicles Act and should be aware of the meaning and the application of Traffic Control Devices which detail out to almost 214 items within the devices.

It is also a fact that most of us procure a license to drive with almost no knowledge of the basic requirements. The governments lay more emphasis on testing the skills rather than the wisdom of the applicant drivers.

Beyond the understanding of the legal provisions, the non-standard road environment is a challenge for the driver which he is not formally aware of. Non-standard roads together with un-trained drivers result in chaos on our roads. IRTE estimates that over 6.2 billion road traffic violations are committed by motorized traffic every single day in India.

In 1996, IRTE pioneered the country's first Defensive Driving Course. Since then, IRTE has trained more than 800,000 drivers from all audiences, across India.

The driver training programs at IRTE are an amalgamation of the best practices, driving techniques and standards, customized to suit the requirements of the driver in the current driving environment. Training Modules are based upon the need of the driver/rider with reference to the vehicles they drive, type of road environment they operate in, provision of legislation in those areas as applicable, as well as the driver’s demographics.

The IRTE's Department of Driver Training is one of a kind in India as it develops realistic, research-based curriculums. The tools and systems of training are supported by extensive research conducted through camera-based audits of the roads and the driving environment as well as surveys and interviews of drivers.
