Q: Hi, this is regarding my query dt. 19th sept. One of the amma (The queen) has told me that learner permit is valid for only a year. But I checked my learner licence, in that the expiry date is 2007. So does it mean I can drive till 2007 or is it by default I have to renew every year, please tell me?? And regarding practising late at night (as adviced by amma Aruna), my learner's license says I can drive only from morning 7.00 till evening 7.00, so can I drive after that or is it illegal? Do the learners licence differ for everyone?

This is news to me ;) Yes, rules generally differ from state to state. So probably your learners is valid for more than a year. But, just in case, do check with your license office before you go out to practice.

Anyway, when I got my learners, it wasnt mentioned that I shouldnt drive at night. Anyway, since it's clearly mentioned, then I suggest you dont drive at night. If possible drive in the mornings (if there isnt much traffic) or in the afternoon. At least in the afternoons. There generally isnt much traffic, so it shouldnt be a problem. Weekends are also fine for practicing.

Try to go to areas without much traffic when you practice. Residential areas are a good place to practice, because you will have a lot of stop / school etc signs there, and will get good practice. Things like changing lanes will however come only with practice. It may be difficult in the beginning, but as you practice it wont be a problem. Best of luck!
