I am ordinary citizen of Pune, Maharashtra. I was holding a driving license issued by Pune RTO. 2 years back, I met with a small accident with a Rikshawala. Fortunately no one was hurt and both the vehicles had minor damages. But still the guy was asking large amount of money and filed a police case against me. In reply, I filed police case against him. For procedural purpose, my driving license was impounded. The hawaldar asked me to come back next day for court procedures. As told I went next day, but he asked me to come back 2-3 days later. Then the hawaldar kept avoiding me and I couldn’t get me license back. Then I stopped visiting the police station. Due to busy schedule in personal and professional life, I couldn’t get my license back in 2 years.
Now, I need driving license. I have following queries regarding this:
1. How can I get my existing license back? Is there any pool/record maintained for impounded license?
2. Can I apply for duplicate license? Will it create any legal complications?
3. Can I apply for fresh license? Will it create any legal complications?
Seeking for legal aspect to this case. Any slightest clue can help me a lot.
Thanks in advance,
