Are you someone who wants to apply for a driving license but don’t wish to give the driving test for a reason? Well, there seems to be a piece of good news for you! You might soon be able to skip the driving test in order to get your driving license, but there’s a way how you will be able to do it. The Ministry of Road Transport and Highways (MoRTH) has issued a draft notification for the accreditation of driver training centers.
