About Smart Card Driving License
A smart card driving license (SCDL) is a driving license that comes in the form of a plastic card, so that it cannot be changed. It has a 64 KB microprocessor chip embedded in it. It will have all the information about the driving license holder stored in it. Though not applicable in all the Indian states yet, this smart card driving license is far better and feasible than the normal driving license. It holds the license holder information on one single card. All the biometric data of the applicant like their blood group, thumb and fingerprint, body markings, retina scan etc. are recorded on the smart card driving license. These details are also held by the RTO/RTA office. For this purpose, the RTO department of each state, where these types of licenses are issued, has special software installed that can read the embedded information in SCDL.
The eligibility criteria to obtain a driving license are as follows. This holds good for privately owned vehicles.
