The Ministry of Public Works and Transport has pledged to shut down the Kingdom’s more than 40 unlicensed driving schools unless they register, a ministry official said. Preab Chanvitol, the chief of the ministry’s Land Transportation Department, said officials had issued a warning about the pending closures during a meeting with driving in-structors on Wednesday. “We will organise expert teams of officials to control every driving school across the country in order to educate them about the importance of having licences, because we need registration to trust the quality of teaching,” he said. Preab Chantivol said there were 91 driving schools, both licensed and unlicensed, operating nationwide.
