The requirements for driver training and testing should be tightened, Prime Minister Mykola Azarov said, opening the Cabinet’s meeting, ForUm correspondent reports.
"I’ve visited one of the Kyiv driving schools recently. It provides European-level training, good conditions for the acquisition of practical skills of driving, but such conditions are not provided everywhere. Many driving schools underestimate the criteria for training, instructors often neglect basic mastery of practical driving skills, reduce the number of practical classes," Azarov said.
In addition, the head of the government believes necessary to raise the criteria for accreditation of driving schools and provide for harsh penalties for insufficient level of driver training.
"Therefore, the requirements for driver testing should be tightened. In addition, severe penalties should be prepared for driving schools for insufficient preparation, as each accident – is a mistake in the work of those who prepare drivers," the PM said.
In this regard, Prime Minister considers necessary to establish a national information system that would esteem each driving school depending on how many accidents happened because of their graduates.
