Interest in two-wheeler learning among women has increased since the lockdown. More than 70 percent of vehicle driving learners after Corona are housewives. Trainers say the number of students attending two-wheeler driving schools has doubled after the pandemic. After the lockdown, many people thought it would be better to go in a private and own vehicle rather than public transport.
They are looking to join the Scooty Driving Schools close to them. There are dozens of training schools in the city, each with 20 to 25 trainees. Learners say we spend half an hour, 40 minutes learning Scooty every day. Now that schools, colleges, and offices are all open. Women are keen on being self-reliant rather than relying on men in the home. Women are learning Scooty for things like dropping off children, bringing them back, picking up supplies, and going out on other errands.
Among those learning are working women as well as housewives. Driving School Owners say housewives make up more than 70 percent of all learners. They are showing interest in Scooty learning as schools are not providing transportation and auto rents are doubled. Driving school owners are training with their own scooters. Courses are for 10 days and 15 days and are charging 3000-6000 Rupees for this.
