Delhi Government’s commitment to the cause of road safety in the city, Minister
of Transport, Delhi Government, Kailash Gahlot inaugurated Delhi’s first Fully
Automated Driving Test Centre(ADTC) at the Regional Transport Office in Mayur
Vihar Phase I. Simultaneously, three more ADTCs started operating in the city
at Vishwas Nagar, Sarai Kale Khan and Shakur Basti. These ADTCs are set up and
maintained as a CSR initiative by Maruti Suzuki India Limited as part of its
agreement with the Department of Transport, NCT of Delhi.
these new high technology ADTCs, the Delhi government aims to make issuance of
driving license, comprehensive, convenient, and more efficient with minimal
human intervention. The fully automated driving test facilities use access
control along with biometric, RFID recognition system. Access Control will
permit entry of applicants only at the pre-assigned time slots, thus making it
efficient and convenient. The new ADTCs are equipped with scientifically
designed test tracks. The use of advanced technology including multiple high
definition cameras help to evaluate applicants against 20 essential driving
skills, in-line with Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR).
Department of Transport, Delhi Government will continue to conduct the tests
and issue driving licenses to qualifying applicants at all Centres. Maruti
Suzuki has invested over Rs. 20Cr to set up these facilities. While the
Department of Transport, Delhi will operate the facility immediately, Maruti
Suzuki will maintain it for next 3 years.
scientifically designed tracks at ADTCs, include tracks for testing reverse
parallel parking, up-gradient, Forward-8, Reverse-S, Traffic Junction, H-Track
for four-wheelers. A track to test overtaking skills has also been introduced
for the first time. This infrastructure, developed jointly with the Department
of Transport, Delhi Government, ensures that applicants are tested for skills
that are actually required as per CMVR.
special exit passage on each track is made so that applicants who fail mid-way
can easily exit without disturbing other applicants and thus save time. For a two-wheeler license the applicants have
to drive around a serpentine track, to showcase their maneuvering skills. They
will also be tested for emergency braking skills and skills to ride on a
straight ramp, both introduced for the first time.
Suzuki will set up similar ADTCs at 8 other locations across the city. These
locations are: Lado Sarai, Raja Garden, Hari Nagar, Burari, Loni, Rohini,
