    Documents Required to Drive A Two Wheeler Registration Insurance Emission Test Certificate

    Driving condition on the roads of India have become worse than ever before. Traffic in cities has reached astronomical levels of congestion. Driving to anywhere has become stressful and annoyingly time-consuming with traffic moving at snail’s pace at almost every hour of the day. Considering such driving woes, a two-wheeler is nothing short of a blessing. Two-wheelers such as motorbikes and scooters are the easiest to maneuver through traffic and are also easier to park, requiring far lesser space as compared to a car. Both these factors combined make two wheelers the ideal form of commuting within the city. Be it for popping over to the store for groceries, going to work, to pick up kids from the school, visiting a friend within the city, a two wheeler can help save a lot of time.

    Purchasing a two-wheeler is far easier a process now-a-days than it was some years ago. Earlier, people had to produce a variety of documents, to purchase a two-wheeler either via cash or even on a loan. However, with time, the process has been simplified a great deal to facilitate quick possession of the vehicle by the owner.

    Documents Required to Drive A Two-Wheeler

    When it comes to taking your newly purchased two-wheeler on the road, there are a few things one must keep in mind. Before you venture out on the road with your two-wheeler, do ensure that you are wearing a proper driving helmet. Protection must be every rider’s first and foremost priority. The second thing which two-wheeler riders must always have on them are the requisite documents without which driving on the road is considered illegal. These documents include:

    • Certificate of Registration – Also known as the RC or Registration Certificate, this is an official document which serves as a valid proof that the vehicle has been registered.
    • Certificate of Insurance – For a vehicle, the certificate of insurance or insurance certificate is an official document which serves as a verification of insurance for the purchased vehicle and provides all the insurance related information on the vehicle. The certificate will include details such as the name of the insurance provider, policy number, type of coverage, limit of coverage, tenure of the policy coverage period. As per the Motor Vehicles Act, it is compulsory for all vehicles to be covered at least under a third party liability insurance policy.
    • Drivers Licence – A driving licence is an official document provided to an individual by the Regional Transport Authority/Office (RTA/RTO), authorizing the holder to operate various categories of motor vehicles. According to the Motor Vehicles Act, it is compulsory for a person driving a vehicle on a highway r any other public road, to hold a valid driving licence at all times.
    • Emission Test Certificate – Vehicle Emission testing is a compulsory test which is done to check whether the emission given out by a vehicle are within the limits defined by the government. Vehicle emission testing is now compulsory and being done to keep the level of pollution from rising. In order to check that your vehicle is releasing emissions which are well within the limit defined by the government, you will be required to carry out emission testing, a service which is provided by many motor repair centers. Once your vehicle has been tested, you will be given an Emission Test Certificate which certifies that your vehicle’s emissions are within the permissible limits. For emission testing, you will be required to provide the registration certificate of your vehicle.
    • Certificate of Fitness / Necessary Permits – If you have a vehicle which is being used for the sole purpose of transportation, then you must always have the permits necessary to operate the vehicle, be it within the state or nationally. You must also carry the fitness certificate of your vehicle which is an official document which certifies that the vehicle is fit to be driven in public places.

    If, while driving, you are stopped by a uniformed police official who demands to check the documents for your vehicle, you are required to present the same as per the law. In case you do not have the complete documents of your vehicle with you at the time of checking, you may attract a heavy penalty or fine.
