A car driver (learner's license holder) must have by his side a person duly licensed to drive a vehicle. He should sit by his side in such a position as to be able to readily stop the vehicle
A permanent license is valid throughout in India.
A traffic policeman in uniform has the right to demand your driver's license and inspect your vehicle documents. He may impound your license if he should so judge it necessary. If a traffic policeman gives you instructions on the road, it is your duty to obey them regardless of what the electronic traffic signals say. When a traffic policeman is stationed at a signal/crossing, he is the final authority. If you cannot find your vehicle, it is likely that it may have been towed rather than stolen. Ask around, local shopkeepers are normally informed about local traffic stations where impounded vehicles are kept.
He may note down the particulars of your license which will later be forwarded to a court. The court will then issue instructions regarding what course of action is to be taken - a certain amount as fine. If you plead guilty and send the requisite amount, the case will be filed, else summons will be sent to you and the case will be judged on merit. He may impend your Drivers' License and issue a temporary license (which lasts only for a stipulated period). You may compound the offence by paying a fine at the police station under whose jurisdiction the license was impounded.Else you will be provided a summons from court, if you fail to appear in court, an arrest warrant may be issued. If the policeman is an officer of rank sub-inspector or above, you may compound the office on the spot by paying a fine. The relevant receipts will be provided to you.
