Many states like Kerala, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh, Telangana, Rajasthan have deferred (postponed) implementation of revised rates due to a 200% increase in challan rates.

If you apply for renewal after completion of one year of the expiry of the license, the individual had to undertake the driving license test again.
