Delhi gets 4 fully automated driving test centres
NEW DELHI: In a first of its kind, the Delhi government on Wednesday inaugurated four fully automated driving test centres (ADTCs), taking a step towards road safety by making driving licence testing 100 per cent transparent, efficient, stricter and comprehensive. Transport Minister Kailash Gahlot inaugurated one at Mayur Vihar - I (Regional Transport Office).
Simultaneously, three more ADTCs were opened at Vishwas Nagar, Sarai Kale Khan and Shakur Basti.
These centres use high resolution cameras, real-time video, instant results, online registration making the process convenient and efficient, and will give accurate and consistent results, he said.
The ADTCs have been developed by the Transport Department in collaboration with Maruti Suzuki India Limited under its CSR initiative. "These facilities use access control along with biometric, RFID recognition system. Access control will permit entry of applicants only at the pre-assigned time slots, thus making it efficient and convenient. ADTCs are equipped with scientifically designed test tracks," Gahlot said.
The use of advanced technology, including multiple high definition cameras, would help evaluate applicants against 20 essential driving skills, in-line with Central Motor Vehicles Rules (CMVR), he said.
