Bribe free drivers licence obtained in Chennai

Reported on December 9, 2013 from Chennai , Tamil Nadu  ι Report #38410

I had just moved from the US and wanted to get my Driver's licence done. My dad spoke to a guy he knew about how to apply for a learners permit and he asked us to pay Rs. 3000 and he would get the whole process done for us. I was vehement that I wouldn't pay anything but the government fees for the process. I went to the RTO in chennai north and found the process to be pretty simple. I paid Rs. 60 for my permit. I asked one of the officials when I had to come collect the permit and he informed me to get it from my driving school. Upon mentioning I had no driving school l was related to he told me "well come tomorrow to collect your permit". Since I knew that permits are generally given the same day I went the same evening. Though I had to wait a bit I did manage to get my permit the same day. The brake inspector who is a lady was a wonderful person to talk to. She was very knowledgeable and seemed like a no nonsense person. I had absolutely no issues taking the test after a month and obtaining my licence. My total cost for getting a licence Rs.410 (Rs.60 for permit and Rs.350 for the test). Much cheaper than the Rs.3000 quoted!!!!
