Regional Transport Office (RTO) of Pune has taken an initiative to make people adhere to traffic rules and regulations. For this they have created a scheme where students from colleges, affiliated with Savitribai Phule Pune University (SPPU) can now get their learning licence from their college campus itself.
As per the officials, a list of students who are interested in this scheme will be made by colleges which will be given to RTO’s permission for further process. Procedure of online application and payment of the fees then will be completed by the students on the website of RTO. After that RTO will assign a date and time for the learning licence to each college. There will be supervision by RTO officials for this test. Informative sessions about traffic rules and regulations will also be organised by the RTO officials when they visit colleges for taking tests. Good news is that there will not be any charges for the test.
But for this colleges need to prepare themselves with the prerequisites stated by the RTO. There will be requirement of 10 computers which should be having good internet speed and local area network. Proper infrastructure should also be required along with the printers. Students who are fitting in the age criteria for licence can definitely apply through this scheme as it would be more convenient for them. Rather than going to RTO for learning licence it is no doubt easy for students to apply it from their college campus itself.
