PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION

 

Purpose:
The purpose of this qualification is to prepare and train driving instructors that will set high standards of law compliance and driving professionalism for all drivers using public roads through consistency and uniform standards. A Driving Instructor promotes road safety by planning and providing training in accordance with applicable legislation to enable the public to obtain a learner’s and/or driving licence. A Driving Instructor teaches, trains and checks the readiness of individuals or groups in the theory and practice of driving skills to operate a vehicle safely and legally on public roads.

A qualified Driving Instructor will be able to:

·  Plan and provide tuition to enable a learner to obtain a learner’s licence in accordance with applicable legislation requirements.

·  Plan and provide training to enable a learner to obtain a driving licence in accordance with applicable legislation requirements.

·  Maintain an effective system of vehicle control.

·  Establish, keep and maintain prescribed records.

Rationale:
The need for the Occupational Certificate: Driving Instructor comes as a result of multiple driving schools located in different parts of the country, wherein every Driving Instructor operates independently with limited capacity. The entire environment is unregulated with a high number of driving instructors practicing without proper qualification due to the unemployment rate among the youth as they try to ensure a livelihood. The rationale for this qualification is to equip people who wish to become driving instructors with the necessary knowledge and skills to assist those who wish to obtain a learner’s or valid driving licence.

This qualification will ensure that traffic laws, road traffic signs, road traffic rules, vehicle controls and vehicle control are properly taught to the clients. It is envisaged that this qualification will contribute to the reduction of road carnage by promoting road safety.

Through this qualification, the traffic fraternity has created a developmental career path along a path of lifelong learning through the formal acknowledgement of competencies, skills and attitudes. Qualified driving instructors will be able to progress career wise to occupations like Examiner for Driving Licences, Road Traffic Safety Officer and so forth.
