Technical Education and Vocational Training Authority (TEVTA) is launching a new course aimed at helping the youth drive a car or truck for future employment opportunities. Reportedly, TEVTA in its new course will be teaching people how to drive HTV and LTV vehicles.
In Pakistan, many employment opportunities have been created since last year when the two major mobile app based ride-sharing companies were launched.
Uber and Careem has involved many people in the employment pool by giving them a chance to earn good money by driving their own car or that of an investor.

Also, the upcoming projects under CPEC would require skilled people who can drive heavy vehicles efficiently to transport goods etc. from one part to another. By teaching people how to master the driving skill, TEVTA can open a major door of opportunities for people.
The course will be initiated from July 2017, where during the program Rs. 1000 scholarship will also be awarded along with a Driving License which will be issued after the program has ended.
This course is not gender specific and both men and women can participate to learn how to drive. Recently, TEVTA also announced that it will soon introduce University of Technical and Vocational Education (UTVE) in Pakistan in collaboration with Chinese Tianjin University of Technical Education (TUTE).
