These views were expressed by TEVTA Chairperson Irfan Qaiser Sheikh while addressing a meeting on Thursday, a press release issued by the organisation stated.

He added that TEVTA started driving course in Lahore in collaboration with traffic police a few months ago which received marvelous response from people belonging to all age groups and genders. “Therefore, after the success of the pilot project, TEVTA has decided to extend the project to five other districts of the province,” he announced.

He maintained that in Lahore, youngsters, especially females took admission in large numbers and majority of the learners were students and housewives.  He also revealed that TEVTA also planned to start specialised car and scooter driving courses for females which would be a landmark for the women of Punjab.
