Department of Driver Training & Road Safety Education

With its global associations and partnerships, IRTE has gained vast experience and an edge in the research and development of these programmes. The driver training programs at IRTE are an amalgamation of the best practices, driving techniques and standards customized to suit the requirements of the driver in the current driving environment. The systems are regularly updated to accommodate the research findings and dynamic needs of the drivers.  The tools, systems and modules have been developed on a bottom-up-approach. The bottom-up approach has been defined by IRTE as understanding the cause of violations through scientific research – including video recording, accident investigation, safety audits of roads and related environments, interviews of drivers and road users - and integrating the research findings with standards and legislation to develop tools and systems of training to meet the needs of drivers in different categories.

IRTE has developed research-based driver training courses that are comprehensive, practical, and meet the requirements of different stake holders in the Indian environment.  Each of the drivers have gone through a process of pre and post-training assessment. This assessment has helped IRTE better understand the needs of drivers and identify places where instructional methods need to be improved. 

Take nothing for granted - driver training is important.
