SAUDI – Recruitment
EFA joins GDC for the driving instructor recruitment campaign in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. GDC is collaborating with CEPA Emea and EYWA who is the founder of the project to train thousands of new driving instructors. There is currently a great need and opportunity for female instructors who speak English or Arabic with experience in driving training.
Drive2theFuture Project – The survey
EFA was involved by the Drive2theFuture Project in disseminating this survey on the acceptability of autonomous driving and the role of driving training. It takes 7 minutes only. You can find more information on http://www.drive2thefuture.eu/
The survey can be made in different languages at https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/BCKBZZK (you can change the language in the top right corner of the screen).
EFA begins collaboration with SAFE-UP, a 3-year European H2020 Research & Innovation project. Below you will find the description of the project and the contribution that driving schools could make to the project.

Public Consultation on Bus and Truck Drivers
The EU rules on driving time, breaks and rest periods apply equally to lorry drivers and bus and coach drivers. However, these rules are not always suitable for passenger transport. This initiative aims to address the specific needs of bus and coach drivers in organising their working time. The Commission will evaluate the current rules and may propose measures to meet these needs.
Transport is one of the economic sectors where artificial intelligence (AI) technologies are seeing rapid uptake. The growth trends are clear: ‘In the future, the transport system will accommodate vehicles with ever growing computing power, high speed connectivity, deep learning algorithms for artificial intelligence, fast processing and decentralised data handling’.
