Driving road safety awareness amongst the new riders and drivers of the city, HMSI announced that through its daily training, it has educated nearly 40,000 learner license applicants of Ranchi since its inception.
Sharing his thoughts on road safety awareness, Mr. Prabhu Nagaraj, Senior Vice President – Brand & Communication, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt.

Almost 70% of the accidents involved young Indians. Lack of knowledge of road safety is one of the main causes of accidents. To enhance their basic Road Safety awareness, HMSI with Jharkhand Transport Department started a pre-Learner License Registration training for all learner license applicants of Ranchi. We are delighted to share that we have educated nearly 40,000 new riders & drivers of the city. Moving forward, we will continue to instill more discipline among the learner license applicants and make them responsible road users in the future.”
