Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has recently launched an initiative whereby driving students can contribute to improving the performance of their driving instructors at driving schools licensed by RTA. The process is made possible via Dubai Drive app, by the end of driving lessons.
Mansour Al Falasi, Director of Drivers Training, Licensing Agency, RTA said:
“This initiative matches RTA’s continuous efforts to improve the process of learning driving and bring it on a par with the top international standards. This star-based rating will encourage instructors to improve the quality of training and improve the overall training deliverables. It will also reflect on the annual assessment of the driving instructor.”
“RTA is always keen to engage community members, including service beneficiaries such as trainee drivers, in improving its services. Feedbacks and views of these driving learners will contribute to the betterment of the training process. It will also improve the performance of driving instructors, and enhance road safety,” he noted.
“From the start of January to the end of the third quarter of this year, driving instructors have spent 1,684,650 theoretical and practical training hours with driving students at various driving institutes in Dubai. About 73,627 students have applied for driving licenses during the same period. Driving institutes have about 2,000 driving learning vehicles and employ about 2,300 driving instructors and trial examiners,” added Al Falasi.
