How to check the validity of a driving license? If you don't know how to check the validity of your driving license then this article would be helpful for you…
We've all been to certain places where we don't know about certain things like for instance I didn't know how to check the "balance of my metro card" but later on I learned about it and that's alright because that's what makes us human beings, we can learn about new stuff. Now let's get on with our topic which is "how to check the validity of one's driving license" here I will be sharing three easy methods to check the validity or expiry date of your driving license you can follow any method as per your liking.
If you haven't already heard about it then it is my rightful duty to bring this to your knowledge that in India your driving license is valid for 20 years from the issued date or until the license owner reaches 50 years of age, you will have to get your driving license renewed after 20 years of issued date or on reaching 50 year of age whichever comes first.
If you are a commercial driving license holder then you must get your driving license renewed every 3 years.
You can even check the validity of your driving license via SMS.
Using your mobile phone or smartphone, start a new message. Type the driver's ID number starting with letters DL for instance DL 1234567881. Send the message to 22846. You will receive a reply SMS from them in a while, saying either of the following:
DL Valid (if your driving license is still valid and effective.)
or DL Expired (if your driving license is expired, here you would need to get it renewed.)
You can check the validity or expiry date of your driving license using your driving license card itself. If you notice on your card then the expiry date is given on your card right next to your photograph under section 4B. You even need to get your photo renewed every 10 years on your driving license card so you may even find the date for your photo renewal.
Why is checking the validity of one's driving license important?
Checking your validity or the expiration date can be important for you because you might want to get your license renewed on time. After all, our government is taking strict actions against people who do not follow the rules and regulations. So to be on the safer side you might want to consider getting all your documents and licenses renewed on time.
