Applying for and obtaining a learners license permit

Reported on January 7, 2016 from Chennai , Tamil Nadu  ι Report #88323

As an NRI i wanted to obtain a driver's license. I prepared and took with me the necessary documents with copies of the documents required with originals in hand for reference

The officials starting with the clerk, RTO and the vehicle inspector were all very cordial when they saw the preparedness and respectful and courteous approach.

They were very accomodative and issued me my learner's permit within 1/2 hour of application and payment of fees.

Despite having driven in the US for several years i could not get a driving permit and apparently have to 1st apply for a learner's permit, wait for 30 days and only then apply for a drivers license.

Overall a very professional and pleasant experience. Plenty of opportunities exist to improve the infrastructure, people who can help first timers and with payment of fees.

What is your reaction after reading this report?
