New Driving License Rules for Car in Nepal 2078


After getting our two-wheelers license we all stay chilled. But being ambitious is natural to a person. Are we satisfied?

Well, of course not

So the day we go for the four-wheelers is sure to come as well. For most of us, at least.
But again, thinking about the effort, practice, time, and the confidence it takes. Ughhh.

Wouldn’t want to think about it. Though a bit of relief when you realize it’s only two days of hard work, NOT 3. A day for overcoming that annoying endless line and a day for your trial examination. Meaning, if you already have a two-wheelers license you should not take the written test again

And a double bit of relief when you find out that the rules for getting the license are somewhat made easy. Yes, similar to that of two-wheelers, the rules for four-wheelers are also updated.

But again “what to do and what not to do” (during the trial) is the question.
So, in this article, we have a complete guide you can follow while taking your trial examination.

1. Round Eight – घुमाउरो ‘8’ (20 Marks)
