I received SMS updates about my DL renewal request from the Delhi Transport Department every 2 hours.

BHPian mukeshgoel recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I got my driving license renewed and I can’t believe the speed of the Delhi Transport Department. They should get an overspeeding ticket for this.

This is a faceless service. It means, there is absolutely no need to visit the RTO (or someone vising you).

On 19th April, I casually logged in to check the process and filled out the form. I was required to pay Rs.400 online and upload:

  • Form 1A (Medical certificate filled in by a registered medical practitioner
  • My passport size photograph
  • Scanned copy of my signature

I was in no hurry so I took my time and got Form 1A signed by a nearby doctor and uploaded these documents on 23rd April (Saturday).

And on 25th April, Monday, I started getting SMS-es every couple of hours about the latest update and at 5:50PM, I got this message:

DL No. DL0xxxxxxxxxx has been printed on 25-04-2022 and it can be tracked using Speed Post Tracking no. EQxxxxxxxxxIN after about 3 days. Thanks, Z.O, SOUTH DELHI,SKK. MoRTH

So, I completed my application on Saturday and DL has been printed and tracking details shared by Monday!

This is unbelievable stuff. Hats off to the transport department.

The new expiry date (2032) is showing on the parivahan website.
