Chandigarh, November 15
The Registration and Licensing Authority (RLA) is all set to start a new camera-based innovative driving testing system (IDTS) that will ensure a technology-oriented assessment of the driving quality of licence-seekers. The new system will also improve the standard of the driving test and end the possibility of human err.
Sources in the RLA said the system would be implemented within two months. Officials of the Central Institute of Road Transport (CIRT), Pune, which has been assigned the task, has almost completed the project. The system will be installed at Traffic Park in Sector 23 and will cost approximately Rs 2 crore.
An RLA official said the work of laying the track for it would start soon. In order to complete the project, the existing facility will be shifted to the the Industrial Training Institute, Sector 26, for a month. Under the system a special track will be developed and cameras will be installed along it.
Applicants’ performance will be recorded on a camera. The marks based on the performance will be given to applicants automatically without the human intervention. The system will ensure that people with sound knowledge of traffic rules and adequate training get the right to drive. — TNS
