Or perhaps you have applied for a learner’s licence and want to track the progress and know the tentative day for its receipt. All the related answers – and some more – are available to you at a click.

Now, let us address different issues as have been mentioned. You may already have a DL, where you may want to know the details or the status of your renewal application. In that case, it’s a simple process online. To know the status of your current driving licence just follow the steps mentioned below:

How to check updates on your current Driving License or renewal

  • Click on “Check Status”

Things to note while entering your Driving License number

  • The total number of characters should be 16
  • This includes either a dash or hyphen (i.e., “-“) or a space
  • In case of a driving licence issued earlier with a different format, please enter the number in the following format: SS-RRYYYYNNNNNNN /or/ SSRR<space>YYYYNNNNNNN (both with 16 characters)
  • SS stands for the two characters for State Code (like DL for Delhi, RJ for Rajasthan, TN for Tamil Nadu, etc.)
  • RR represents the two-digit RTO Code
  • YYYY is for the year of issue in four digits (i.e., 1998 instead of 98, 2022 instead of 22, and so on)
  • NNNNNNN represents the rest of the numbers as mentioned in your current DL. If it is less than seven digits, then zeros (0) to make the total number seven
