It's a great pleasure to invite you to the 55th CIECA General Assembly and Congress in Vienna (Austria), on 23 - 26 May 2023, hosted by our Member the Austrian Road Safety Board (KFV).
This year the Congress theme is: What do novice drivers need to know today, what skills do they need to perfect and how do we test them?
Increasing forms of electric vehicles and micro mobility coupled with the growing penetration of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) present new challenges for testing authorities who need to adapt to these fast-paced advancements. While there is flexibility and options to vary how theory classes are taught, with novice drivers exploiting tools such as self-study; risk competence or selfreflection are more sensibly taught by a driving instructor or in a group session. Furthermore, with rapid changes in the traffic environment and continual advancement in vehicle technology, we are presented with the additional challenge that training, testing and continuing education must also continue to evolve. As testing organisations, we must rise to this challenge and take time to reflect how our tests need to be adapted to ensure they are relevant and fit for purpose in the modern era.
Please register soon for this year's General Assembly and Congress!
