Purchasing a new car is an exciting milestone in anyone's life. The thought of hitting the open road and exploring new destinations is a thrilling prospect. However, before you can fully enjoy the experience, certain legal requirements that need to be met. One such requirement is obtaining the registration number for your car. While permanent registration is mandatory to be able to drive your car on the road, you are expected to have at least a temporary registration before you are given a permanent one. This is because a permanent one may take time. Bajaj Allianz Car Insurance provides the perfect solution to secure your car during this transitional period, offering peace of mind and financial protection.
What is a Temporary Registration Number?
A temporary registration number is akin to a placeholder licence plate number assigned to a newly purchased vehicle until the permanent registration number is issued. Temporary registration is necessary to ensure that vehicles are accounted for and comply with the legal requirements while awaiting permanent registration. During this period, it is crucial to safeguard your vehicle with proper insurance coverage as well.
Applying for a Temporary Registration Plate
To obtain a temporary registration number for your car, you need to follow a few simple steps. Firstly, you must approach the Regional Transport Office (RTO) in your jurisdiction and submit the necessary documents. These documents usually include proof of purchase, invoice, insurance cover note, address proof, and identity proof. The RTO will verify the documents and issue the temporary registration number along with the assigned temporary license plate. Usually, this process may be taken care of for you by the dealership.
Other Important Documents Required for Your Vehicle
Apart from the temporary registration number, there are other essential documents that you must possess while driving your vehicle. These documents include a valid driving license, the original sales invoice, the vehicle's pollution under control (PUC) certificate, and the insurance certificate. It is mandatory to carry these documents while driving to ensure compliance with the law and to avoid penalties.
