New car drivers are being taught how to drive by the car themselves in a series of new training courses.
The training is part of a push by the Government to get more drivers to take up the role and make a living.
It is part, the Education Minister Chris Grayling told the BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire programme, of an attempt to get new drivers into the car.
But in a nation where only around 10% of people can get a driving licence, there is a long way to go before a million new car drivers become active.
New car driving coursesThe Government is also promoting a series with a focus on how to become more involved in the car industry.
Its called “autel driving” and it is designed to teach a range of skills including communication and driving.
In an interview with the BBC, Dr Grayling said the courses were “a very good first step” but added that more needed to be done.
“The aim is to get 1 million drivers into car ownership, and the more people who become involved in it the better the chances of getting the job done,” he said.
“So we are really looking at a combination of things.
We are encouraging people to become involved, so that they can get into the profession, but we are also encouraging people who have never got involved in car ownership to take on the role.”
We want to get them into the industry as quickly as possible, but at the same time we are trying to encourage them to make a life in this industry.
“What you need to know about the coronavirus:How does car insurance work?
The Government says the courses will be available in London, Manchester and Leeds, and that the courses, which are being offered at a cost of £3.8m, will be offered by the end of the year.”
In that way, you can drive, you are driving, you might get some experience of driving, and you will have a chance to get in touch with your friends and family and see how they are doing.””
So you have a choice of driving or you can learn how to be a passenger in a car.”
In that way, you can drive, you are driving, you might get some experience of driving, and you will have a chance to get in touch with your friends and family and see how they are doing.
“Dr Grayling says the new courses will not replace the current drivers licence.”
These courses will help you develop the skills necessary to become an active and active member of the car driving profession, rather than being a passive learner,” he told the programme.”
You will be getting the skills you need and the confidence and the knowledge necessary to be an active driver, to be able to be in the front seat, to actually take the wheel of a car.
“The new courses are part of the Government’s drive to get at least a million more people into the role of car driver.
Mr Grayling acknowledged the courses are aimed at young people and that they are unlikely to be of much use to those with more experienced driving skills.”
I think they are a good first approach, but it is also about helping to get a little bit of experience of the driving skills and the drivers licence,” he added.”
There are so many people who would like to drive and they are going to need to go to the driving school and we are encouraging them to take that next step and learn the skills they need to be safe.
