Every two-wheeler vehicle, such as a motorcycle, scooter, or scooty, has a unique registration number. Following the purchase of a bike, the owner must register it with the local RTO within 30 days. The RTO assigns a bike registration number after a successful registration, which serves as identification for the vehicle and its owner. The registration number must be printed on a number plate that must be permanently attached to the bike.
The registration number is used to acquire a bike insurance policy, renew a bike insurance plan, process a bike insurance claim, and check the bike insurance information, in addition to identifying the bike. For all of these procedures, you only need to input the car registration number on the insurance provider's website.
