Bihar State Road Transport to introduce driving licenses for deaf people!
June 5, 2018
India is on its way to follow inclusion everywhere. One of the ways is to ensure that driving licenses are issued to everyone after proper tests, regardless of their physical ability or disability. A few weeks back, the Bihar state transport department had agreed to issue driving license to disabled people.
Now the state is all set to issue driving license to deaf people, for two and four wheelers as well.
An official from the transport department said that members of the Bihar Sports Council of the Deaf had requested the department to not deny driving licenses to deaf people. Deaf people will have to undergo a separate driving test before getting licenses. The Road Transport Department will issue the first driving license for a deaf person on Tuesday. This move from the government will ensure inclusion as well.
The official added that deaf people are usually very careful while driving.
Deaf people can also drive two and four wheelers after taking necessary precautions and by following road rules.
Officials plan to introduce a sign or signal which indicates that the driver is deaf.
