There is a so called driving school named Satija Driving School in R.K. Puram. They have a huge number of cars which they use to ‘teach’ driving illegally. I doubt whether they even have any licence to teach driving or not. Any professional driving school will ask you to get the Learner’s licence before they let you sit on the driving seat of a car. But that’s not the case with Satija Driving school. They have all their cars rigged at cheap garage with clutch, brake and accelerator pedals under both front seats, hired cheap unprofessional drivers (probably many of them don’t even have driving licence themselves) as driving instructors. They will let you drive from day 1 on Delhi roads. What a danger they are posing to other drivers and pedestrians on the road. The instructors will never teach you the technicalities of driving, about traffic rules and signals. They will just teach you how to use steering and clutch, brake and accelerator pedals and you are a done. Just pay them another Rs. 2500 and they will get a permanent driving licence!!! I can’t believe such an illegal and dangerous practice is going on in broad daylight in Delhi.
Recently one of my friends paid them Rs. 3000 for assistance in getting the driving licence. He had already learned driving and was ready for the test and all. He just didn’t want to go through the complex documentation process at RTO and he paid Satija Driving for assistant in that. They took the money and after that they started making lame excuses on phone; like the person who deals with RTO appointments has gone on holiday and will be back in 15 days etc.
If you are planning to learn car driving or get assistance for driving licence find some other place. Just avoid Satija Driving School or you will lose your precious money, time and peace of mind.
