Aadhaar has gradually but steadily become one of the most important documents for Indian residents. You can now connect your Aadhaar Card to your driver's licence.

The Road Transport Department of each state or union territory issues driving licences. As a result, the online method for linking Aadhaar with driving licences varies by state.

To combat this threat, the central government intends to link Aadhaar with driving licences. Duplicate licences can be easily controlled because only one driving licence can be linked to an Aadhaar card. The process has not yet begun, but will do so once the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways has finalised all legal and infrastructure arrangements. If a person has multiple driving licences, he can surrender them at a regional Road Transport Department office.
