The Land Trans­port Author­ity of Fiji will host a re­fresher work­shop for the driv­ing in­struc­tors in the Western Divi­sion this Satur­day.

Pres­i­dent of the Fiji Driv­ing School As­so­ci­a­tion in the Western Divi­sion, Ro­hitesh Sharma, said the work­shop would pro­vide a plat­form for driv­ing in­struc­tors to in­ter­act with LTA of­fi­cials and al­low open dis­cus­sions from both sides. “The last time we had a re­fresher meet­ing was in 2004 in the Western Divi­sion and there­fore this time we have called on the as­so­ci­a­tion mem­bers and non­mem­bers to join us for the work­shop as this will be help­ful,” Mr Sharma said. Mr Sharma said one of the top­ics to be dis­cussed in the work­shop would be the LTA’s com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the driv­ing in­struc­tors. “We have seen that many a times new laws came into place with­out prior no­ti­fi­ca­tion to us so we just want to have them place a sys­tem so that proper com­mu­ni­ca­tion is done es­pe­cially in terms of any change in the laws,” he said. He said as stake­hold­ers, the driv­ing in­struc­tors and the LTA must im­prove their com­mu­ni­ca­tion. “There will be in­struc­tors who have grown old in the busi­ness and there will be new ones so this is the chance for LTA to also alert them and clar­ify on the re­quire­ments, el­i­gi­bil­ity, pro­cesses and other laws that need to be ad­hered to by the in­struc­tors,” Mr Sharma said. The meet­ing will be held at the Fiji Na­tional Univer­sity Na­maka cam­pus. Ro­hitesh Sharma.
