Driving instuctors under scrutiny



The Road Safety Authority has found one reason why so many people have been failing the driving test.

They found that many driving instructors did not know the theory or the practice of driving.

Noel Brett, CEO of the RSA, said 26% of driving instructors had failed the theory test, while 20% had failed the practical test.

Instructors had to undergo a test set by the RSA, as all instructors have to be registered by that body.

To illustrate the size of the problem with road safety, he said that since 1980 a total of 13,002 people had died on the roads.

He said this is four times the number killed in the Northern Ireland troubles.

He suggested that on present trends, 75 to 80 more people will die on the roads between now and the end of the year.

It is astonishing but not that surprising. People in public/official sectors should be challenged like any employee in the private sector,to ensure they are all up-to-date.
