Emirates Driving Institute (EDI), the largest and the most successful driving institute in the UAE and the Middle East, has collaborated with the Youth Chamber of Commerce (YCC) and National Skill Development Corporation (NSDC) to establish driver training institutes in various parts of India. NSDC under the aegis of Ministry of Skill Development & Entrepreneurship is one of its kind public-private-partnership which aims to catalyze creation of quality vocational training in India across different sector.
EDI has got into this partnership with YCC and NSDC to provide a platform to facilitate the candidates to acquire driving licenses, in line with the requirements of UAEs Roads & Transport Authority and regulatory agencies of other part of Middle East
The initiative will help fast-track the employment prospects of thousands of Indians who wish to work in the UAE and other parts of the Middle East, but miss out on opportunities because they don’t have a valid driving license when they enter the country. These expats will now learn about driving style and road etiquettes in India, and will be better equipped to drive in the UAE and other parts of the Middle East once they enter the country.
This collaboration has also increased pool of prospective employees, as companies from UAE and other parts of the Middle East will now have a large pool of candidates trained in line with the requirements of the Country of Destination. During the ceremony conducted at the head office of EDI, Amer Belhasa, Chairman of Emirates Driving Institute and Vice Chairman of Belhasa Group of Companies, said, “This collaboration with YCC and NSDC has given us a path to set up driving institutes in different parts of India. Citing a huge demand of drivers in the UAE during Expo 2020 and other initiatives across the region, EDI is aiming at providing job solutions to Indian youth in the Gulf.”
