In India, having a license alone is not enough as you need to renew or update one as soon as it expires. You can never really drive your vehicle on Indian roads without carrying one, as driving without a license is an offence in India.
Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 makes it mandatory for every motor vehicle driver to own a valid driving license. A driving license is an official document provided by the Indian government that certifies an individual to drive on Indian roads.
Section 177 of the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988 states that nobody can drive in India without a valid DL and doing so is a punishable offence that can attract a fine of Rs. 500 and/or imprisonment of up o 3 months.
A permanent driving license is valid for 20 years or until the age of 50, whichever is first. An expired driving license is valid only for a month i.e. 30 days post which you can renew the same by paying a penalty. If the expired license is not renewed within 5 years from the date of expiry, then you will have to get/obtain a fresh driving license.
