“The link between the practical driving test and road safety” was the title of a CIECA (the International Commission for Driver Tastings) Expert Advisory Group (EAG) workshop on 18 June 2015 at the Headquarters of DGT in Madrid, Spain.
Month: June 2015
Yesterday I was invited to an informal introductory meeting with the new Minister Andrew Jones MP, he wanted to hear views on road safety in general and the challenges and opportunities that we collectively face in this area.
This was the first of three meetings the minister is holding with road safety stakeholders, to ensure he has rapid access to a wide range of road safety perspectives. Each of these meetings is intended to cover the whole road safety agenda.
Amongst topics covered of particular interest to driver trainers were: compulsory theory training for L drivers; CPD for driving instructors; learner drivers on motorways with ADIs; learner drivers to record their progress; improvements to the practical driving test; compulsory practical training for L drivers; the use of telematics and GDLs.
