Professional Driver Training

Following the success of the Zambia Professional Driver Training initiatives, the project was expanded into Tanzania. A Memorandum of Understanding was signed in June 2010 with Transaid and the National Institute of Transport (NIT) in Tanzania, to build the NIT’s commercial driver training capacity. This ensures the sharing of best practice and expertise between African countries in addition to the UK. It also recognises that commercial driver training in Africa cannot be done in isolation. Harmonising driver training curricula and licensing standards between these countries is essential for improved operator practice and enforcement of appropriate driver behaviour.

Additionally the project will help to meet the demand that will be created by the Tanzanian government for the implementation of a passenger bus rapid transit system in Dar es Salaam. Transaid also focuses on building NIT’s capacity to deliver quality HGV and CPC driver training and creating a new bus and truck driver training curriculum.
