If you own a vehicle in Chennai, you must have a valid driving licence to drive it in the city or in the country legally. The RTO issues a driving licence in India in the specific region of the applicant. Only when the applicant successfully clears the driving licence test is the RTO supposed to prepare the licence. After the test is cleared, the RTO starts preparing the driving licence and dispatches it after about two weeks. However, it takes another two weeks for the driving licence to reach the applicant’s registered address finally. In this time, the applicant can check the status of the driving licence online. The RTO does advise applicants to check the driving licence status only after the initial two weeks as the information might not yet be entered. Applicants can check the status of their driving licences online through either the state Transport Department official website of the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways website page called Sarathi or Parivahan. Below you will find everything you need to check the status of your driving licence in Chennai.
As mentioned earlier, the RTO from where you applied for a driving licence takes a minimum of two weeks to dispatch the driving licence. Therefore, you can only find any information about your driving licence online from that time. It takes about two weeks from the date of the clearing of the driving licence test for the RTO to dispatch your licence. This means that checking the status one day after the test will not bring up any results. From the time the driving licence is dispatched, it takes a minimum of another two weeks to reach your address. You can start checking the driving licence status about two weeks after successfully clearing the DL test. If you cannot find your driving licence status even after 3-4 weeks, you should contact the RTO for more information.
For anyone who has applied for a driving licence, a duplicate driving licence, an international driving licence, or a renewed driving licence, the steps for checking the status are listed below:
Step 1: Visit https://parivahan.gov.in/parivahan/

Like most states in India, Tamil Nadu has its own transport department and official website for it. Anyone who has applied for a driving licence in Chennai can also check their driving licence status through the state transport department’s official website. Here is what you need to do to check your driving licence status through the Tamil Nadu Transport Department website:
Checking your driving licence status online is considered the faster, easier, and more convenient option as it can be done in a matter of minutes rather than visiting the RTO and waiting in long queues. While most of the states in India have their own official transport department website where individuals can check the status of their driving licences, the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways introduced the Sarathi platform where driving licence applicants and holders can find all the information they need in one easy to use location. Here is how you check the status of your driving licence in Chennai through the Sarathi website.
As mentioned above, the RTO only dispatches a driving licence a minimum of two weeks after the applicant has cleared the driving licence test at the RTO. Under normal circumstances, the driving licence is delivered to the registered applicant within a month after the test has been cleared. However, a few driving licences might get delayed due to verification procedures or delays by the postal service. The RTO advises all driving licence applicants to start checking their licences’ status after a minimum of two weeks. It is also not advisable to check your driving licence status every day as the status does not change that quickly. When you want to check your driving licence status, it is best to do so once or twice a week at the max. In case you cannot find any information about your driving licence even after a couple of weeks, you can approach the RTO for more information.
