Basic Overview Of The Driving Licence Categories

A driving licence basically gives permission to a person to drive a specific kind of vehicle on the road such as a two-wheeler, four-wheeler or a commercial vehicle. This official document is mandatory if you want to drive on public roads. The type of driving licence that you can possess depends on the class and type of motor vehicle. The different types of driving licence categories are as follows:

(a) Motor Cycle without gear

Two-wheelers with a capacity of up to 50 CC are a part of this DL category. A candidate should at least be 18 years old to drive a motorcycle without gear. He/she should also know about all the traffic rules and regulations. For vehicles without gear but having more than 50 CC capacity, the same type of driving license is issued, although ideally, those vehicles should not be classified in this category.
