Kinana Homsi-Mardini could not believe what she was hearing. After receiving the great news that she had passed her driving exam, she was told that she needed to take four more classes.

“I went through a lot of trouble getting my driving license.

“I consumed a large part of my annual leave to make this happen and I had failed two times already.

“I was not even sure if I would try a fourth time if I had failed the third, so you can imagine my relief when I passed.

“Then, I got this news. I had to come back. Four more times, for after-exam classes.”

Kinana protested and claimed that the examiner felt her distress, and granted her an exception.

“But I still had to pay for the classes, of course,” says the Syrian.

However, not everybody will be able to escape the rule, which was introduced by RTA in January this year.

“Everybody who registered after the 25th of January this year will have to abide by this rule,” acknowledged Ahmed Bahrozyan, CEO of the licensing department of RTA.
