The Parivahan website also offers the service of validating and generating a driving license. However, this process is quite cumbersome and doesn’t make sense for someone who is showing a license through a phone. In addition, access to licensing-related services will not work if there’s no phone network.

4: Hard copy

The final way to produce driving license is by showing the hard copy to the police personnel. But you should know that the law states that you must produce the driving license to the authorities when they request it. This means you can keep the printout and simply show them the details. Most often, the traffic police will withdraw your license and then try to verify its authenticity. In such cases, there have been instances where the authorities misuse their powers. So, always have the license with you and show the necessary details to the authorities.
