To get a discount on a particular brand of car I am planning to buy the car in my wife's name. Is it legal according to the RTO rules to drive a car that is in my wife's name (if she is not travelling in the car)? Is it mandatory to have DL to be a car owner?

Hi Soumyajit, First of all congratulation in advance for your new car. Going ahead with your query, Driving Licence is mandate to keep while you are driving. This is a standard protocol and guideline from Indian Government. Any person who knows how to drive should have a valid Driving Licence.


Now, talking about RTO rules, you can purchase the car on the name of your wife and drive it. The only thing which matters is that you should be having legal documents which can prove that the car is yours.

Rest, please get in touch with nearest RTO for more clarification.
