Pune: Applicants forced to take driving tests on MT cars


According to a media report, the Pune RTO is forcing applicants who are trained on automatic transmission cars to take their driving tests on a car equipped with a manual transmission. As a result, the number of applicants failing the tests has increased.

In the past few months, there has been an increase in the number of applicants failing the driving tests conducted at Institute Of Driving Training And Research (IDTR), Bhosari.

According to the Maharashtra state transport commissioner, the testing tracks in the state do not have a provision in the 4-wheeler permanent license test, where applicants can be given the option of a dual-control, automatic test car.
