The system, which is being implemented by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA), will ensure all students get a fair deal.

The new mechanism, to be in place by early next year, will keep an eye on all activities in driving schools, including the duration of drivers’ training, a senior official at the RTA’s Licensing Agency, told Gulf News in an exclusive interview.

“The new system will electronically monitor every single move of the instructor as well as the student. It will keep track of records, timings, history as well as the activities of all the training sessions,” said Jamal Hashem Al Sadah, Director of Monitoring and Enforcement Department at RTA’s Licensing Agency.

RTA, currently, has a system in place, which monitors the performance of driving schools through its team of inspectors. More info
