The Education Department is eagerly awaiting a proposal from the Transport Ministry on incorporating driving lessons in schools.
The proposed syllabus would see grade 11’s complete their year with a learner’s license and matriculate with their drivers.
The initiative would see under 500 000 pupils qualify annually and could also curb corruption.
The Basic Education Ministry’s Hope Mokgatlhe said Minister Angie Motshekga had yet to receive the framework.
“The Minister of Basic Education Mrs. Angie Motshekga is aware of this initiative and the minister is quite excited. She cannot wait to see what the content of this proposal is,” she said.
