The State Transport Department now allows the applicants to apply and take the learners’ test online from the comfort of their homes. The Aadhaar-based authentication will enable the aspirants to take the new learners’ test. The test has a few videos on road safety, and then the applicants need to attend a quiz after watching the videos. The cut-off score of the test is 60 per cent. And, after finishing the examination, scoring 60 per cent or above, applicants can download their license themselves.
