STATE GOVERNMENTS TO SET UP MODEL DRIVING SCHOOLS

Boss Gida Mustapha has urged the state governments to set up model driving schools in their states.

This will help to curb cases of quackery in the driving school operation and will help to restore sanity to the nation’s roads.

Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) must ensure that it is only those that have been properly trained and appropriately certified that are allowed to drive on the nation’s roads. 

 

Boss Mustapha mandated the FRSC Management to collaborate with relevant stakeholders to evolve measures that could address the malpractices, saying it they were capable of undermining the integrity of the licensing system.

Corps Marshal of the FRSC, Dr Boboye Oyeyemi stated that the policy of Driving School Standardisation Programme was evolved as part of Management’s resolve to address issues of standardisation in the operation of driving schools in the country.

He noted that in the efforts to achieve the goals, state committee on driving schools are set up to deal with issues of monitoring and recommendation of the driving schools for accreditation to ensure that the highest standard is observed by all operators licensed to operate.

The Chairman of the FRSC Governing Board, Mallam Bukhari Bello in his brief remarks restated the essence of driving school as a means of enhancing the integrity of the National Driver’s Licence and curbing recklessness on the nation’s roads.

He assured that the Board will continue to collaborate with the Corps in its determination to ensure safety on the nation’s roads through operation of standard driving schools.
