In India, applying for a Driving Licence (DL) involves several steps and certain documents must be submitted. Several forms must be submitted to the Regional Transport Office (RTO) as well. In case you are 40 years and above, you must submit a medical certificate or Form 1A.
The Form 1A indicates that you are medically fit to ride or drive a vehicle. In case you are below the age of 40 years, Form 1 must be submitted. It is mandatory to submit these forms to get a DL in the country.
Process to Get Form 1A
Form 1A can be downloaded from the official website of the Sarathi Parivahan (https://parivahan.gov.in/parivahan/sites/default/files/DownloadForm/Form-1AN.pdf) or by visiting the RTO.
