Highlights

  • Sources said the govt will deliberate on the revised criteria for Automated Driving Test Tracks
  • The modifications that were earlier modified were supposed to come into effect from August 8
  • This was done in view of the rising number of instances of people flunking their tests

The Delhi government has deferred the implementation of some relaxations in existing norms for procuring driving licenses, sources said.

The Transport Department of the government had passed an order stating that certain existing norms for procuring driving licenses will be eased to ensure convenience to the general public from Monday onwards.

However, sources claimed that the government will deliberate on the revised criteria for Automated Driving Test Tracks before its implementation.

Sources said that Transport Minister will once again reassess the guidelines before they are implemented.

The Delhi government had issued orders to make modifications at various automated driving test tracks, in view of the rising number of instances of people flunking their tests, officials had said on Saturday.

The Transport Department had constituted a committee to look into the matter which recommended making some modifications. These modifications were supposed to come into effect from August 8.

"There were rising instances of people failing their driving tests due to things that were not concerned with driving. For instance, the width of the last circle on which two-wheeler drivers had to do spiral maneuvering was smaller than the other two circles, which meant that for safety purposes, people had to put their feet to the ground. This meant they would flunk their test," an official had explained.
