MP Transport FAQ's:

  1. Is vehicle registration compulsory in Madhya Pradesh?

    Getting a vehicle registered is absolutely mandatory in the whole of India. Chapter IV of the Indian Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, prohibits the use of any unregistered vehicle in any public place in India. Driving an unregistered vehicle therefore is a criminal offence.

  2. Do I need to re-register my vehicle if I wish to use the same in another state for a few months?

    Vehicle owners can use their registered vehicles in any other state for a period of up to 12 months without any hassle. Post this period, they must get their vehicle re-registered in the state they are using their vehicle in. For instance, if your vehicle is registered in Madhya Pradesh and you move to Maharashtra for a temporary project, you can use your vehicle in Maharashtra for up to 12 months without re-registering your vehicle in the state.

  3. How to apply for a fancy vehicle number in Madhya Pradesh?

    To bring transparency in the way VIP registration numbers were allocated traditionally, the Madhya Pradesh government has adopted an online system to allocate fancy vehicle numbers to interested applicants by way of auction. The interested vehicle owners must register themselves for the auction and bid for the fancy number they are interested in. The special/premium registration numbers available for auction can also be checked out on the e-auction portal.

  4. When should I renew the vehicle RC for my two-wheeler?

    According to the rules formed under the Central Motor Vehicles Act, a vehicle Registration Certificate (RC) for a two-wheeler should be renewed after 15 years from the original registration of the vehicle. Post which, the RC should be renewed every 5 years. At the time of renewal, there is a list of documents to be submitted to the registering authority who will issue a renewed RC after verification of documents and inspection of the vehicle. The vehicle must be physically produced at the RTO for inspection of roadworthiness of the vehicle.

    It should also be noted that an application for RC renewal should be made not before 60 days of the date of expiry of vehicle RC as per rule 81 of the CMV Rules, 1989.

  5. What is the minimum age limit to obtain a driving license in Madhya Pradesh?

    The minimum age to apply for a learner’s driving license in India is 16 years. The application for the same can be made along with a written consent from the parent/guardian. The person holding a learner’s driving license is eligible to drive a gearless two-wheeler. To obtain driving license for a geared two-wheeler or car, a person should be a minimum of 18 years old.

  6. Is it compulsory to insure a two-wheeler in Madhya Pradesh?

    Yes, the Insurance Regulatory and Development Authority of India makes it mandatory for all vehicles to have a minimum of a third-party insurance cover. However, a third-party liability insurance policy only covers the insured against legal and financial liabilities arising out of damage or loss caused to a third person or their properties. This is why it is better to opt for a comprehensive two-wheeler insurance policy that provides you with a greater scope of protection against a variety of mishaps involving your vehicle.

  7. How can I get the vehicle registration related forms?

    All forms related to vehicle registration and related applications can be downloaded online or can be obtained from the concerned RTOs. For many services, applications can be made online as well.

  8. When must I report an accident to the police?

    Incidents that resulted in third party property damage, bodily injury to self, bodily injury or death of third party and theft must be reported to the nearest police station and an FIR generated. This document will be crucial in the ensuing claim process.

  • High-security registration plates may soon be a reality in Goa

    The Goa transport department will soon be floating tenders for the implementation of high-tech number plates that provide extra security. The tender will look for the lowest bidder for supplying high security registration plates (HSRP) for vehicles in the state. These number plates will be fitted on four-wheelers, commercial vehicles, and two-wheelers.

    The move is on the back of a contempt case that was filed in court for the delay experienced in the implementation of the HSRP scheme. In the past, the tender has been cancelled several times.

    There are 13.2 lakh vehicles registered in Goa as on 31 December 2017. There are also 72,000 vehicles being registered annually. Hence, transport department officials are looking to hasten the implementation of the scheme.

    Parameters such as cost and type of materials are being analysed at the moment. After this, the MoU will be signed with the lowest bidder. Selected bidders are required to go to the showrooms and get the device affixed on new vehicles.
