No recommendations will work anymore if you do not know what the road-signs mean. So if you are not aware of the meaning behind the road signs, you better update yourself as from now on the test for driving license will now take place on hi-tech driving track.
Worth 1.42 crore rupees, a hi-tech driving track is being prepared in Chitrakoot Nagar. It is being estimated that the track will be completely ready by April. As per RTO Dr. Manna Lal Rawat, online driving test will take place on the track. The track will be equipped with cameras and sensors. These hi-tech systems will test the driving abilities of a person. On-the-spot results will be generated by this system. The entire process will also be recorded and the applicant can check his negative points through this recording. Each applicant will undergo a 37-point test. 60 to 80 percent marks are required for passing the test and this testing system cannot be fiddled with. So don’t hunt for recommendations, they are of no use anymore.
Each applicant will have to prove himself on track for 8, H and triple 8 test. The same test applies for reverse driving. The road on sides of the track will have markings on which if the wheel goes more than 4 times, then the applicant will be considered a failure by the monitoring system. The applicant must clear the test in the prescribed time limit.
As per RTO officers, if the applicants learn all the basic and necessary systems of driving there will be fewer chances of road accidents. This will also result in organised traffic and in future the city will see more of systematic drivers.
As per RTO sources, more than one lakh driving licenses are being issued every year and around 50000 are being renewed. It has also been reported that more than 5000 duplicate licenses are also being issued (in cases of lost licenses).
