The fewer people you train the shorter the queues down the line.
But seriously, is there a longer term plan of training students on electric vehicles?
I learned stuff in my CBT which are already redundant on my NIU scooter.
I've touched on this in previous threads..
At some point EV tests(automatic) will take over from manual ICE tests.
As we won't be able to buy new ICE cars, from whenever it is, the switch to EV is an issue of timing.
Most instructors run fairly new cars - you get warranties and they're less likely to fall apart.they do take a bit of a hammering.
As EV takes over, more and more instructors will switch
The problem is that your average test pass is in the 17-20 age range and they're not going to be able to afford an EV as their first car.
It'll be an old manual car - but their test will have been an automatic test and so they won't be allowed to drive a manual...
Catch 22 - stay manual and hope your car holds together or switch and have pupils pass who then can't afford an EV.
Its going to be a good few years before EV 2nd hand prices drop, in the necessary numbers, to the level of a current 15 year old manual Fiesta.
Hopefully, for me, I'll be out of the game before the song and dance begins..
