The new rules have set clear standards for any private driving schools. To be eligible to conduct driving tests, they must meet the proper criteria set by the government, which include the following.

  • Land Requirements: A minimum of 1 acre for two-wheeler training and 2 acres for four-wheeler training.
  • Qualified Trainers: Trainers must have at least a high school diploma, five years of driving experience, and knowledge of IT systems.
  • Testing Facilities: Schools must provide suitable testing facilities equipped with observation cameras and GPS systems.

What Will Be the Curriculum of Private Driving Schools?

According to the new rules, which will take effect on June 1, 2024, these private driving schools will follow a structured curriculum. The schools will divide the driving lessons into theory and practical parts. For light motor vehicles, the training will last 29 hours over four weeks, while heavy motor vehicles will require up to 38 hours over six weeks. The aim of such a rigorous training structure is to produce better-prepared drivers, further enhancing road safety.

Once a candidate has passed the driving test at any of the accredited schools, he/she will receive a digital certificate linked directly to the RTO database. This will make getting a license faster and more efficient.
