Ranchi is the home-town of Indian cricketing legend, M.S. Dhoni. Captain Cool is known to have a fleet of bikes in his farmhouse in Jharkhand’s capital city.

Whether you are a celebrity or a common man, whether you own multiple vehicles or just one, you need to follow the law of the land.

All you must pay for are the corresponding RTO fees for the task at hand. Read ahead to get an idea about the functions performed by the Regional Transport Office in Ranchi, Jharkhand.
Whether you own a car for commercial activities or private purposes, you need an appropriate DL to drive it on Indian roads. In order to receive the license, you must pass a few tests. These tests are structured to test your basic knowledge related to traffic rules and signs and your driving skills. The theory test involves multiple-choice questions and the practical test involves driving the car as per the supervising officer’s instructions. Such tests are carried out by the Ranchi RTO.
You can directly approach the RTO in Ranchi for a Learner’s License and a Driving License. For private cars, you do not even need to go via a driving school, which is required in case of a commercial DL. A permanent DL issued by an RTO is valid all over India. However, if you want to drive a vehicle in a foreign land, you need to discuss the same with the RTO and get proper documentation in the form of an International Driving Permit.
You might be aware of State Codes mentioned on a vehicle’s number plate. But are you aware that the number plate also features the RTO code? Vehicles sold in a locality are usually registered in the RTO of that locality. If you buy a four-wheeler in Ranchi and it is registered at the Ranchi RTO, its number plate will feature Ranchi’s RTO code: 01 along with the state code: JH. All such registration work is performed at the Ranchi RTO.
