Introduce Driving as a compulsory subject at Senior Secondary level

Driving is a skill which every one should learn in a scientific manner so that one becomes a good driver with complete knowledge of driving rules, road safety, road signs, driving etiquettes, first aid and many more. But unfortunately, in our country, driving is learnt from anyone who knows driving. May be from parents, siblings, friend or some local driving instructor(?). This way most of the drivers learn to operate a vehicle but never become good driver.
Almost everyday we hear news of accidents and fatalities due to road rage, wrong side driving, improper use of dipper, and negligence in many ways. In many cases, specially truckers and cab drivers with very low or nil academic qualification are taken over by aggression and lead to hazards on road.
Majority of such cases can be curbed if all our drivers are educated enough. The Government should introduce driving as a subject at +1 and +2 level and after successful completion of the course, the student may be awarded a driving license. This way every future driver will be essentially qualified till +2 level and with two years of learning experience. It will help our country saving many many lives which we loose now because we do not have any organised scale driving institute.
