Need For Registration Mark
The Motor Vehicles Act disallows the use of any unregistered vehicle in any public place in India. All motor vehicles therefore are required to be registered with the registering authority. A vehicle Registration Certificate (RC), a two wheeler insurance certificate, and the PUC are some of the important documents that a vehicle owner must have.
What Does A Vehicle Registration Plate Say?
The Motor Vehicles Act makes it compulsory for all vehicle owners to display vehicle registration numbers at the front and rear of their motorcycles. The registration number of a vehicle provides significant details about a vehicle. It mainly constitutes four parts. The first element of a registration mark is the two-letter code that denotes the state where the vehicle is registered. A few examples are HR for Haryana, DL for Delhi, and UP for Uttar Pradesh. The second element in the registration plate is the two-digit code that represents the registering authority with which the vehicle is registered. The third and the most important element of a vehicle number plate is the four-digit registration number assigned to the vehicle. The registration mark is always assigned from the range of 0001 to 9999. Once all the registration marks from the range are used, two more letters are placed before the registration mark and the same range is used again.

Similar to vehicle registration, getting an insurance policy for your vehicle is compulsory in India. A two-wheeler rider must carry the vehicle insurance certificate with him/her at all times while driving. According to the rules formed under the Motor Vehicles Act, a basic third-party liability insurance policy is the minimum necessity for all motor vehicles in India. The policy protects the insured against any financial or legal liabilities arising as a result of any loss or damage caused to a third party or their property. Though the third-party liability policy could be cheaper, it is advised to go for a comprehensive two-wheeler insurance policy as it provides a larger scope of protection against a variety of incidents including third-party liabilities.
