The Land Transport Authority has confirmed that the Defensive Driving Course is suspended for now due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The course is a mandatory requirement before drivers with provisional licenses are given their full license.
This comes as a driver in Nadi raised concerns that he was turned away from the Nadi office when he had gone to his exam.
LTA says the course is a very important part of their safe driving curriculum and due to its nature of requiring candidates to be physically present in a class, classes have been suspended to adhere to COVID-19 safety measures.
They say candidates will be notified on when they will be able to reschedule the course and those who need to sit for it will be given first priority once the course resumes.
