For some RTOs the site is (

For some of the RTOs (Meenambakkam RTO - Chennai in my case) the fees cannot be paid online and needs to paid at the RTO office. Its better to be there at around 10 AM when the office opens as it is a government office, the later we go the more time it takes (from personal experience). In that case, take a printout of the filled application form (Form 2 and Form 1A), photocopy of the ID proof, Address proof and DOB proof along with the originals. When you go to the RTO, ask for the counter to pay the fees, they will check the application ID and ask you to pay Rs.380 for Learner's License. Then you have to wait in a queue to get the details verified with the originals. Once this is done, they will take the application form, along with the photocopies and then call you to take a photograph. The next day I got an SMS saying "Your Learner's License is approved. Your License Number is "--License number here--"". When I checked the status in the site '' it also said License is approved an there was an option to take a printout. There was a proposal in the parliment to remove the test for LLR, looks like its approved?
