RTA’s Licensing Agency has carried out two inspection campaigns targeting driving institutes and centers to verify the compliance of these institutions with the rules and modules related to night driving, and the delivery of lessons to trainee drivers.
“These two campaigns form part of RTA’s efforts to verify the compliance of driving institutes with the applicable rules and modules. The team entrusted with the job is always keen to make relentless efforts to ensure the realization of RTA’s vision of Providing Safe & Smooth Transport for All,” said Jamal Assadah, Director of Moni¬toring & Enforcement, Licensing Agency, RTA.
“These inspection campaigns have triggered improvement plans, which would be implemented in the near future including upgrading the e-link between driving institutions and RTA’s licensing systems such that it would be possible to verify online the delivery of training lessons according to the prescribed procedures. Such an exercise would save the time & effort of the concerned parties, and at the same time expedite the provision of information required by the RTA from driving institutions,” explained Assadah.
“The underlying intention of such inspection campaigns targeting driving institutions is to verify the compliance of these entities with the timing of training lessons, the delivery of theoretical & practical training hours, documentation of information in the records of training lessons, and educating driving institutions about policies & legislations endorsed by the RTA and how to comply with them in the public interest.”
