Driving lessons to be included in South African school curriculum

www.businesstech.co.za - The Road Traffic Infringement Agency and the Department of Basic Education have announced a partnership which includes extending driving lessons into high school curriculums.

Speaking at the Soshanguve East Secondary School, Transport Minister Dipuo Peters said that the announcement was part of a long term initiative to establish and enhance road safety by “skilling” drivers.

According to Peters, the provision of a driving simulators programme will be implemented during the 2017/18 financial year.

“We also have the partnership with the Department of Basic Education to ensure the inclusion of road safety in the curriculum and the training of teachers. This essentially entails different aspects of road safety awareness which are intended to adequately skill new drivers,” Minister Peters said.

“Formal education and training will remain important but we must also broaden our minds and find ways to include road safety messages into the wider curriculum, into mathematics and science, geography and civic education,” Minister Peters said.

The Department of Transport is in the process of finalising the Graduated Driving License framework.
