LTA's driving recognition

THE work of the Land Transport Authority has been recognised internationally.

The recognition comes as a form of requests made to LTA to hold a defensive driving course in the Solomon Islands.

In a press release, LTA chief executive Naisa Tuinaceva said two officers were in the Solomon Islands to conduct the defensive course.

"We are extremely proud of this achievement. It's an indication of the valuable and depth of experience we possess and hold in terms of defensive driving skills," he said.

"To be selected to teach and implement some sort of defensive driving system outside of Fiji is a great achievement.

"We value our work and it's good to know that there are those outside of Fiji who recognise our ability and the capacity we provide in terms of defensive and in other areas as well."

Mr Tuinaceva said LTA previously conducted defensive courses for the Solomon Islands Electricity Authority on two separate occasions in 2012.

"The first phase was conducted in early 2012 and phase two was conducted late last year and LTA's presence in these two different occasions has been strongly felt following request from another Solomon Island company — the Solomon Islands Water Authority," he said.

"The Solomon Islands Water Authority chief executive made a special trip to Fiji to make arrangement with LTA officials to have defensive course conducted and to have their company fully DDC compliance.

"The DDC is one of the training programs the authority conducts, it also conducts similar refresher driving workshops for PSV drivers, police and government authorised drivers.

"This is done to upskill drivers' driving knowledge and ability and also re-emphasising the road related rules and regulations that govern all drivers in Fiji."
