Delhi govt orders variations at automated driving test tracks

The Delhi government has issued orders to make variations at colorful automated driving test tracks, in view of the rising number of cases of people collapsing their tests, officers said on Saturday. 

 

The Transport Department had constituted a commission to look into the matter which recommended making some variations. These variations will come into effect from August 8. 


“ There were rising cases of people failing their driving tests due to effects that weren’t concerned with driving. For case, the range of the last circle on which two- wheeler motorists had to do helical maneuvering was lower than the other two circles, which meant that for safety purposes, people had to put their bases on the ground. This meant they would collapse their test, ” explained an functionary. With campaigners failing their driving tests, the pendency was also going up. 


“ normally , if a person fails a driving test, they can get a new date of the coming week, but with the rising cases, the pendency was also going up, ” he said. 

 

Now, the range of the last circle will be made analogous to the range of the former two circles, and people will be allowed to use their bases, he added. 


“ Earlier, women would face great difficulty in this and they have stopped applying for the licenses, ” he added. 

 

Another thing that would be part of the new rules is that the campaigners will have to be informed in advance that they’ve to wear a seat belt while appearing for the driving test. 

 “ numerous times, campaigners didn’t wear seat belts while giving driving tests and they would be failed. Now it’s made obligatory that they will have to be informed in advance that they’ve to wear seat belts while giving the test, ” he said. 


A test track comprises six sections – eight conformations( driving in a corridor erected in the shape of number eight), catching, stopping at a business junction, stopping at the ramp and moving forward without it rolling back, S conformation in 120 seconds, and resemblant parking in 90 seconds.
