As many as 1.54 lakh applicants (93%) have received the apprenticeship license from the Delhi Department of Transport under its “faceless services” in the past six months. According to official figures, from August to mid-February 2022, a total of 1,54,618 applications were received for an e-learning license. The number of candidates who passed the test was 1,45,124. Whereas 3,410 learning license applications are still pending. A total of 6,084 participants failed the test, 1,157 of them due to color blindness.
The Delhi government had launched the Transport Department’s “faceless services” related to driving licenses and different types of permits and certificates on August 11, 2021.
To qualify for e-learning licenses, applicants will need to take the driving test online and receive the document at a given address.
The city government has closed four Motor Licensing Offices (MLOs), including IP Estate Vasant Vihar, Sarai Kale Khan and Janakpuri, to boost online services related to driver’s license, registration certificate, permits and termination of the mortgage.
Under “anonymous services” for various other transport-related documents, more than 85% of applications have been approved so far.
According to the Delhi Transport Department, people can avail faceless service by logging on to “transport.delhi.gov.in” and applying for the required document. The process is authenticated by Aadhaar and the fees can also be paid online.
The requested document is sent to candidates by express mail. They can also download it via a link texted to them on their registered mobile number.
