What is the need of driving license

Date: 11 Apr 2016    Group: Lawyers    Category: Indian Law   

All over the world is there a need of driving license. If we have diving license we need extension of validity. Why it is so? In my thought DL is a kind of certificate that indicates that I can drive a vehicle. Once I have a DL that would be final but it needs extension. It seems that if we do not extend the validity we cannot drive a vehicle. Does it mean that we are not expert in driving?

The motor vehicles are machines. Skill is required to be learnt to operate and control the various mechanical features of a motor vehicle. Since such vehicles are driven on public roads, the same are likely to cause injuries and damage to property of public members also. The individuals desirous of plying a vehicle are required to learn the necessary skills and then obtain a driving license after passing the examination. At the time of issuing driving license, the full particulars of the individuals are collected so that legal action can be taken against them for violation of rules etc. in case so required in future.
Proper driving requires physical fitness and good eye sight also. Therefore medical examinations are required periodically to ascertain the same. The validity period of permanent DL for private vehicles is 20 years from date of issue or the time of attaining the age of 50 years, whichever is earlier and the same can be renewed for a period of 5 years each time subsequently.

Driving license gives you a permit to drive a certain type of vehicle around nation. And for this reason it is allocated. I can tell you that driving license can be really one thing that often given for people who are aware of how to handle the vehicle.

Most of the time there is a big need for license because people who don't know how to drive should not be driving at all.

Different types of vehicles with different set of rules. And this is one of the reason people are working on some strict sets. That is one reason each state has some rules.

Without driving license we can't hold any accountability. And also we can't enforce restriction on people.

The increasing stress and changes in our lifestyle we are prone to lot of health conditions. We may have lost some eye sight due to aging, our body motor mechanism might have changed and may be hands are trembling or legs are dysfunctional, etc. A validity is given to every person based on their age beyond which a periodical check up with doctor and his certificate is required for renewal. It does not mean you have lost your skill. It merely means you are fit enough to ride the vehicle.
