Transfer of Ownership of a Registered Vehicle in Dehradun

Obtain RTO forms 29 or 30 physically from the Dehradun RTO. Vehicle owners can also download and print the concerned form/s from the official website of the State Transport Department of Uttarakhand.

Submit the duly filled form/s. Get a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the state where the vehicle was initially registered. If the car is under finance, you require an NOC from the concerned finance company.

Next, submit the PUC and vehicle/car insurance certificates. Deposit the payment for road taxes and applicable processing fees. Keep all the documents in order to present them quickly for a faster transfer.

Complete the registration of the transfer process and affirm the sale/purchase of your vehicle. Submit documents verifying your age and address with recent passport-sized photos. The RTO Dehradun takes around 30 working days to complete the vehicle ownership transfer procedure.

Is it Compulsory to Register Your Vehicle with the RTO?

Under the Motor Vehicles Act 1988, registration of your vehicle is mandatory. If you live in Dehradun, a valid Registration Certificate (RC), car insurance, and PUC are essential to drive on Dehradun roads. Driving a vehicle without registration with the concerned state and RTO is an offence punishable by law.

Here, the state of Uttarakhand and RTO Dehradun are the authorities concerned who issue RCs after thoroughly verifying forms, documents, and identification.

A vehicle RC is essential to determine ownership. The RTO Dehradun maintains a database of vehicle owners and related details. It also helps track road tax collection and observe illegal activities.

Four-Wheeler Insurance in Dehradun

Car insurance policy is mandatory, but how and in what category do you obtain such insurance? People often go for the cheaper option (third-party liability insurance) just to show they have vehicle insurance. However, it hardly covers anything apart from injury to a third party or damage to their property, and you might experience financial drain in the hour of need.

Therefore, we suggest comprehensive car insurance for your four-wheeler to drive stress-free with a minimum financial shock. Comprehensive car insurance covers third-party liabilities, loss from vandalism, fire, theft, natural calamities, and accidents. It is a combination of self-car damage insurance and third-party insurance.
