Does anyone know more about the classifications of cars in Indian driving licences? We need more precise definitions for Indian descriptions such as "light motor vehicle" or " medium passenger motor vehicle" etc. to be able to compare them to the clearly defined EU classifications. How much exactly can e.g. a "light motor vehicle" weigh and how many persons are you allowed to transport in the respective vehicles? We would appreciate any advice as to where to find more detailed information on this topic. Thank you very much in advance.

India "light motor vehicle" law Jun 8, 2006

I was away for the evening, but when I got back home I saw your question and decided to look into it...

I entered the heading of my post in Google (also see http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLD,GGLD:2004-29,GGLD:en&q=india%20"light%20motor%20vehicle"%20law ) and the second hit was for the Indian Motor Vehicle Act of 1988, of which Section 2 seems to contain the 'official' legal definitions of the terms you are looking for - if that isn't detailed enough, the site looks like it also contains a link to a legal helpline for this particular act (see http://www.helplinelaw.com/bareact/bact.php?no=01&dsp=motor-vehicle ).

But don't take my word for it - I'm not from India and I certainly don't pretend to even have a clue about their legal system. Perhaps some of our fine colleagues from India can help you further.

Good luck!

PS - I can't get the first link to work properly because it contains commas, but that doesn't matter; you can just copy and paste the heading of this post into a Google search or the link straight into your browser and you'll probably find what you need.
