lol, should i congratulate you on getting a learner's DL, even when you are a good driver?!

when you are in india, such negligible offences doesnot counts.
just hang that "L" and you can drive alone
but try not to get caught by cops while driving! so follow all the rules.

even if you are caught for driving alone during a L-season, you can start singing some stories
but you should drive carefully, and avoid cops' trouble.

hot rod

Since you have waited so long for your learners, be a good boy and dont drive alone. Have someone next to you who has a vaild permit. You can apply for the permanent license after a month. Till then its best to have someone next to you to avoid trouble in unforseen circumstances

Congratulations for your LL.
You need to have that L board when you are driving with a learning license.
Also someone has to be seated next to you,that doesnt mean you get your friends with you.The person with you must have a valid DL.
Drive very carefully,as people on the road,mainly rickshaw walas will try to scare you ,thinking you are a learner.

Guy's Please do not advise anyone the wrong way. Rules are there to be followed.

I least expected fellow team-bhp'ians advising to violate rules.

In case if anything goes terribly wrong there wont be any one of us to help him, no insurance coverage, no rules to support him and so on... Eventually he would end up behind bars.

He has waited so long for a license any why not an extra month to drive alone.
Till then he can drive with a "L" sign struck according to specifications and a valid license holder accompanying him.

If you notice, more people have told him to put L board and not drive alone than not.

Whatever, Islero. At Team-BHP, we should not be advising people to break the rules.

Congrats hot_rod. It is only a month, follow the rules as Dippy and SRK have said or else do not drive.
