To curb the growing number of road accidents, the Government of Haryana has inaugurated the Institute of Driving Training And Research (IDTR) in Karnal. This institute has been set up in collaboration with Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India Limited (HMSI). 

The institute will offer people training to drive/ride light and heavy motor vehicles, ranging from two-wheelers, three-wheelers, four-wheelers and even trucks and buses. Going by international standards, the centre boasts of an automated driving test track, modern training equipment, advanced simulators, classrooms, workshops and engine rooms.

Through this institute, which also houses a hostel, drivers will get practical training on different types of terrains and road conditions without any human intervention. Once the tests are cleared, the centre will also issue driving licences. Between 300 and 350 individuals are trained at this institute on a daily basis.

Manohar Lal Khattar, the Chief Minister of Haryana said, "Many road accidents occur due to lack of driving skills and breaching of safety by drivers. So, the State government has planned to impart driving training to the youth who are aspiring to become drivers." 

He further added that about 5 lakh road accidents take place in India every year and in these accidents, about 1.5 lakh people lose their lives, partly due to the lack of proper driving skills. Haryana holds the thirteenth spot when it comes to road accidents and the State government is making sincere efforts to change the statistic.
