In case, if you are unable to book the test online then you must visit the traffic department section in our premises to schedule.


The direct test is governed by the Traffic department. We don’t have a part in the direct test and to ease the procedures, the Traffic department has an office in all driving schools through which they perform the tests. 

This section in our Academy issues appointments from 9:00 am to 11:30 am -Sun to Wed (ladies must visit them on Thursdays). They follow “first come first serve” through queue management tokens (that's what we are aware of). 


We (DDA) are a private organization and are entitled only to provide practical training to the students who have registered a driving course with us.
