Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) has launched special driving courses for delivery motorcyclists in Dubai.
The Dubai transport authority is directly overseeing the induction of these drivers in tailor-made training courses approved by the concerned bodies.
The initiative is part of RTA’s ongoing efforts to boost the safety and security of roads in Dubai.
It is also part of a master plan to regulate the business of delivery, logistics and electronic media companies in Dubai.
The approved drivers training institutes will undertake the training of drivers of delivery motorbikes in courses comprised of several basic elements.
In particular, the course will define the obligations and procedures to be observed by drivers for their safety and the safety of community members, by avoiding any violations as a result of no compliance with the applicable rules and regulations.
The key components of the course include the legal responsibility of drivers, traffic rules relating to the driver, reasons and statistics of traffic incidents, how to deal with different driving conditions and how to react during traffic incidents and with emergency vehicles.
At the end of the course, an assessment will be made to verify drivers’ knowledge.
Qualifying drivers of delivery bikes is part of RTA’s continuous efforts to bring happiness to customers and ensure compliance with the highest safety standards. It also contributes to the reduction of traffic incidents.
