This section of the article will give you an overview of the functions performed by the Regional Transport Office in Varanasi, Uttar Pradesh.
The Varanasi RTO is entrusted with the responsibility of collecting road tax associated with private and commercial vehicles.
The RTO issues the DL for those who want to drive private vehicles as well as commercial ones. A DL is issued after a practical and theoretical test, which is also conducted by the RTO. As a part of the theorrtical test, the applicants need to attempt and pass a multiple-choice examination. For the practical test, the applicant needs to ride a two-wheeler or drive a vehicle as instructed by the supervising officer.
There might be situations where people apply for a gearless two-wheeler license and get it. A few years later, they want a license for a bike with gear as well. In such cases, the RTO can authorize to ride a bike with gear by adding a class of vehicle to your DL.
Vehicles purchased in Varanasi are registered at the local RTO. This not only applies to new vehicles but also for second-hand vehicles.

Be it a DL or an RC, they have a limited validity period. These documents need to be renewed periodically. You can get in touch with the Varanasi RTO for such renewal purposes.
