    Kerala MVD Details FAQ's

    1. Is it possible to drive a vehicle without registration in Kerala?

      Registration of vehicle is compulsory in India and driving an unregistered vehicle is a criminal offence. The Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 disallows any person to drive an unregistered vehicle in any public place in India. Thus, it is not possible to drive a vehicle without registration.

    2. How long can I use my two-wheeler in another state without re-registering the vehicle in the state?

      If you wish to use your vehicle temporarily in another state for a temporary period, you can do the same without any hassle for a maximum of 12 months. Post which, you must obtain the NOC from the original registering authority and get your vehicle re-registered in the state you are using your vehicle in. Suppose, your vehicle is registered in Kerala and you move temporarily to Karnataka, you may use your vehicle in Karnataka easily for a year. Use of your vehicle beyond this period will need you to re-register your vehicle in Karnataka.

    3. Can I get a fancy number for my two-wheeler in Kerala?

      The demand for fancy vehicle numbers has significantly increased in past few years. You may check the list of available fancy numbers through a dedicated page in the Kerala Transport Department website. You may also check the registration fee for the number that you are interested in. If there are multiple applications for a particular vehicle number, the same is allocated by way of auction.

    4. After how many years is a vehicle RC need to be renewed?

      A vehicle Registration Certificate (RC) for a private/non-commercial two-wheeler is valid for a period of 15 years. As per the rules under the Motor Vehicles Act, the registration of a two-wheeler must be renewed after this period and in every 5 years thereafter. At the time of RC renewal, the vehicle must be presented at the RTO for inspection of its roadworthiness. Along with the application of renewal, several other vehicle documents are needed to be submitted. After verification of documents and vehicle inspection, the RTO will issue a new RC for your vehicle. However, the application for renewal of RC should be made before 60 days of the date of expiry of the original RC.

    5. What are the age requirements to obtain a driving license in Kerala?

      Any person above the age of 16 and below the age of 18 can apply for a learner’s license for a non-gear vehicle. The application for a learner’s driving licence must be submitted along with the consent of the guardian/parent. A person above the age of 18 years can obtain a driving license for geared vehicles including two-wheelers and cars.

    6. Is two-wheeler insurance compulsory in Kerala?

      Just like a vehicle Registration Certificate (RC), a two-wheeler insurance policy is mandatory in India. All motor vehicles in India must have a minimum of third-party liability insurance cover. Vehicle owners must carry the insurance policy at all times and must produce the same if the concerned officer asks to do so while on the road. While a third-party insurance cover is the minimum need, it provides a limited coverage. A comprehensive two-wheeler insurance plan on the other hand can be more useful as it provides coverage against a variety of misfortunes involving your two-wheeler including liabilities arising out of damages or losses caused to a third party.

    7. Where can I obtain application forms for vehicle registration related processes?

      Forms required for vehicle related processes can be either downloaded online or can be obtained from the RTO. For some services, applications can also be made online.

    8. How can I reach out to Kerala Transport Department for any queries or doubts?

    • Rumours of Ducati sale surface after change in VW chief

      There are several rumours doing the rounds regarding the sale of the Ducati brand, following the new appointment of CEO by the Volkswagen Group. VW has recently announced the appointment of Herbert Diess to replace Mathias Mueller as the CEO of the company.

      Diess has worked at BMW before shifting to Volkswagen in 2015. He has proposed a new management structure with several executives looking after multiple platforms simultaneously with the various brands of the company, i.e., Skoda, Audi, Lamborghini, and Porsche.

      There were also rumours around the sale of Ducati last year. The company is said to have proposed the sale to raise capital for its liabilities. However, there was severe opposition from trade unions, particularly the Volkswagen labour unions, in this regard. The sale was subsequently called off.

      There has been no official word from Volkswagen regarding the sale, but last year’s rumours seem to have gained fresh momentum now.

    • Online services from Goa transport department gets mixed responses

      The online transaction facility recently launched by the Goa transport department has received positive and negative reactions from the public. The facility has introduced a token system for the payment of taxes and permit fees for commercial vehicles. This system has replaced the traditional queue system. This is a positive step in the direction of a cashless society.

      People are of the opinion that the token system helps them use their time in an optimal manner.

      The registration copy of the vehicles, permits, and driving licenses are also being sent through Speed Post now. Earlier, the applicant was expected to come to the head office and collect the particulars. However, some citizens are of the opinion that the process now takes longer, sometimes even months, to complete. The PoS machines that are installed at the offices are of immense help to citizens, as these avoid the need for providing exact change for the transactions.

      The online transaction facility is expected to end the existing practise of acquiring licenses and payment of fees through influence and bribes.
