THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Minister KB Ganesh Kumar on Wednesday said that the officials conducting the driving tests will face consequences if tests go beyond the newly proposed number. The minister said that those with good driving knowledge should pass the test. Driving school owners also expressed their support in this regard.

"A situation where a person has to learn driving after getting the license shouldn't exist. No one's livelihood will be affected after the reforms. There are allegations about schools charging more money from female students. This problem will be solved with the consolidation of rates," the minister said.

"KSRTC wil set up 10 driving schools. Funds for this will be released soon. The resources of KSRTC will be used for this purpose. Relaxation will be given to those belonging to SC and ST categories," he added.

Zig zag, reverse parking not abandoned

The minister said that the new driving method, which includes zigzag and reverse parking instead of 'H' test, has not been abandoned.

More space is needed to prepare the track in the design as suggested by the Department of Motor Vehicles. So, the minister asked the driving school organizations to come up with a design for conducting the test in the available space.

Proposals should be submitted within one month. All this will be taken into consideration and appropriate system will be put in place, the minister said.
