HA NOI (VNS) — An automatic vehicle training programme is scheduled to start in September, as the demand for learning how to drive only automatic cars increases.
The Directorate for Roads of Viet Nam (DRVN) submitted a draft plan to the Ministry of Transport that would revise a circular on driver training and licences, according to DRVN Deputy Director Nguyen Van Quyen.
The plan creates a training programme for those who want to learn on just automatic vehicles. Those who want to learn manual or both automatic and manual should enroll in pre-existing manual vehicle training courses. Automatic courses will be shorter and cheaper than manual ones. Individual costs depend on the school.
The conversation about creating licences for just automatic cars started in May in Viet Nam, dividing the public. Some worried the policy would create difficulties for police, or that people wanting to drive manual cars without proper training would cause more danger on the road. — VNS
