Riding a bike on a traffic-less road can be fun. So can cruising along a picturesque route in your car. Some people love driving while some look at it as a means to an end: to commute to work. Whichever category you may belong to, one thing is clear—driving requires focus and skill. Not everyone can or is allowed to ride a bike or drive a car. You need a license for it. This Driving License (DL) is issued by a Regional Transport Office. For example, in Hajipur it is issued by the Hajipur RTO or the applicable designated license issuing authority of the region.
Hajipur in Bihar is part of the state’s Vaishali district. The state of Bihar has 38 District Transport Officers and 9 Regional Transport Authorities.
