It is not uncommon to see a person who owns more than one driving licence. By linking the driving licence to unique Aadhaar, the government can make sure that each citizen would not own more than one driving licence, thereby eliminating the fake and duplicate driving licences. It would be easier to identify the owner of the vehicles as well as better handle all the related data. It is important to know that after the deadline, all the driving licence which are not linked to Aadhaar will become invalid.
