The gathering, which was held in the Head Office of the RTA, included a visual presentation highlighting offences brought against driving centers this year as regards the Unified Training Contract; which have soared by as much as 86% to 22 offences when compared to 2012. A brief account was made about the offences of the provisions of the Contract including: lack of maintaining the required registers, negligence in presenting the service to the trainee, lack of making a contract with the trainee in accordance with the template approved by the Agency, and disrupting the work of the Agency’s supervisors.
