Duration of course for drivers doubled

Ministry of Education has developed a new program of driver training provided for education reform future motorists. The training system has undergone a sea change: now citizens will have to get in-depth knowledge in the field of physics, psychology, and sociology. The course included, in particular, the study of the “causes of aggression and hostility in drivers”, “influence of temperament on driving style,” and “influence of advertising, media and film industry on driving behavior.” Obtaining a driving license will have a detailed understanding also in electronic systems and types of car transmissions. As a result, the duration of the courses will almost double that likely would increase the cost of training.
Published 766-page draft order the Ministry of Education, claiming “exemplary programs of professional driver training.”
Document changes the general principle of learning: all drivers, regardless of category first pass the first stage of training - the basic cycle of knowledge and skills, which includes knowledge of traffic rules, the legal framework of the foundations of driving and passengers, as well as “physiological bases of activity of the driver.” Second cycle - it spetsznaniya required for specific categories of rights. The third block is designed for professionals who are engaged in passenger and cargo traffic. Thus, to open a new category will not need to spend time re-sit the theory (now, for example, the holder of license category B requires re-examination on knowledge of traffic rules for Category A). But if a citizen comes to driving school “from scratch”, the duration of training will be about 212 hours (instead of the current 106 for category B). Most likely, it would increase the cost of training.
Of greatest interest is the basic cycle. In fact, the future driver must be both a physicist, psychologist and sociologist. Learning the basics of driving, a student will master topics such as “Gidroskolzhenie and hydroplaning tires”, “Forces and moments acting on the vehicle when braking and curvilinear motion.” The course “Psychophysiological bases of activity of the driver,” students will learn “propensity to engage in risky behavior on the road”, “the impact of advertising, media and film industry behavior” and “causes of aggression and hostility among drivers.” “We took the German approach: one must understand what happens to him, why he annoyed, irritated why other drivers and how to avoid conflict”, - explained the “Y” program co-President of the Interregional Association of Driving Schools Tatiana Shutyleva. First aid course, on the contrary, will be reduced: instead of 24 hours of training will be 16. “The driver must be able to provide only basic first aid in case of accident to the victim had not died before the ambulance,” - explained Ms. Shutyleva. Expanded list of topics on the production and maintenance of the machine.
