Why Driving schools will be deregistered

Crucial meeting on fate of driving schools

The government announced it plans to deregister all driving schools in a bid to curb the road carnage.

NTSA has called for a meeting on Thursday with all driving schools representatives to deliberate on the way forward.

According to reports by the Standard, an inter-agency task force will be formed to oversee a fresh registration exercise after the High Court quashed an earlier proposed curriculum by the authority targeting the schools.

Interior Cabinet Secretary Fred Matiang’i is expected to chair the meeting after he had instructed NTSA to be firm in its mandates.

Worrying road crashes

Officials plan to issue new directives to register all the schools afresh so that only qualified institutions are left in business.

Our statistics on road accidents do not reflect the number of roadworthy vehicles currently registered in our systems. These discrepancies imply that there could be several unroadworthy vehicles operating after passing our inspection tests irregularly.” CS Matiang'i stated.

The CS said there is no place for laggards in the revamped authority as the government seeks to institutionalize better road safety measures in the country.

Driving schools moved to court last year to challenge a proposed curriculum for training and testing of drivers by NTSA.

The court further rejected a public notice issued by NTSA requiring that all driving schools and public service vehicle operators be vetted by an inter-agency task force.
