Driving instructors say they were made promises that issues would be resolved

Limassol driving instructors who were set to protest on Monday, said they were assured by the transport ministry that measures would be announced this week that would resolve problems in their sector.

Speaking after a meeting at the transport ministry, one of the instructors Simos Koufallis, said the minister, the ministry’s permanent secretary and head of the road transport department, appeared willing to resolve the problems and pave the way to train new driving test examiners.

The instructors were planning to stop work for two hours to protest the long waiting lists learner drivers are put on while at the same time, alleging there are plenty of examiners in Paphos with little work while Limassol’s offices are understaffed.

The protest was postponed after the transport minister invited them to a meeting.

According to Koufallis, they were assured that within this week, the measures would be announced that would allow additional driving tests to take place, set to tackle people waiting for up to five months for their test.
