New driving test area to be built

PHUKET TOWN: The Phuket Provincial Transportation Office (PTO) is to set up a new area for conducting driving tests. The project, which has received the go-ahead from the Department of Land Transport, is expected to be completed within the coming 12 months. Driving tests currently take place on an area next to the PTO office which, the PTO says, is small, inefficient and sub-standard. The new testing ground will be built on an empty area of about six rai behind the office. A budget of 2,286,250 baht has been allocated for the project. The PTO believes that once the new testing ground is operational, it will be able to conduct more stringent driving tests, which in turn should reduce the number of road accidents.
