AP Transport and Vehicle Registration Process FAQ's

  1. Is it mandatory to get a two-wheeler registered?

    Registering a two-wheeler in India is compulsory in India as per the provisions of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988. The act prohibits the use of any unregistered motor vehicle in any public place in India. Violation of the rule is a punishable offence under the law.

  2. Is it possible to use a two-wheeler outside Andhra Pradesh without re-registration?

    If your vehicle is registered in Andhra Pradesh, you may use it in any other state for a maximum period of 12 months. After this period, the vehicle must be re-registered in the state where you have moved in. The process requires you to get an NOC from the RTO where the vehicle is originally registered and submitting an application for re-registration of the vehicle in the state where you have moved to.

  3. Is it possible to get a special registration number for my two-wheeler in Andhra Pradesh?

    Yes, you may apply for a special number for your vehicle in Andhra Pradesh by making an application in Form RRMA. The allotment for special vehicle numbers in Andhra Pradesh is done by way of auction. The list of available special numbers is displayed on the notice board at the AP Transport Head Office. Applicants must register themselves for the auction to participate in the bidding process and try their luck on getting their desired registration number. Detailed information on reservation of special registration numbers can be obtained from the official website of Andhra Pradesh Transport.

  4. What is the validity of a vehicle Registration Certificate? When should it be renewed?

    A two-wheeler Registration Certificate (RC) is valid for a period of 15 years after which it must be renewed. After first renewal, the RC should be renewed in an interval of every 5 years. For renewal of RC, the vehicle must be physically presented at the concerned registering authority for physical inspection. After verification of documents and vehicle inspection, the RTO issues a new RC to the vehicle. It must be noted that an application for RC renewal must be made not before 60 days of the expiry of the originally issued Registration Certificate.

  5. Are there any age restrictions on applying for a driving license in Andhra Pradesh?

    For application for a learner’s licence for a non-geared two-wheeler, a minimum age of 16 years is required. A learner’s driving license is not issued without the consent of the parent or guardian of the applicant. A person who is above the age of 18 years can apply for a driving license for a geared two-wheeler or car.

  6. Is it mandatory to get a two-wheeler insurance policy in Andhra Pradesh?

    Getting a two-wheeler insurance plan is as important as getting a vehicle Registration Certificate (RC) in India. A vehicle owner must carry the vehicle insurance document at all times and must produce the same if a designated officer asks them to. As per the law, each vehicle in India must have a minimum third-party liability insurance policy. This policy covers the insured against any legal or financial liabilities arising out of losses or damages caused to a third party. As a third-party liability cover provides a limited coverage, it is advisable to go for a comprehensive two-wheeler insurance policy which offers a greater scope of protection in a range of incidents involving your two-wheeler.

    With the advent of digitalisation, a lot of services can be availed by making the application online. Forms can also be downloaded over the Internet or can be obtained from the concerned RTO.
