Here’s what to do if you want Traffic to give you two map points


Since the introduction of the new road safety law last March, the data on road fatalities is even worse than before the pandemic. According to the latest DGT statistics, so far this year,
1,045 people lost their lives on the roads.

Efforts by the government and the DGT are aimed at reducing these figures, but more than continuing to encourage coercive measures, such as the controversial ban on exceeding the speed limit on a road, even overtaking, they want to see in 2023
promote driver training and driving training.

This year the road safety agenda has already been published in schools and next year the safe and economical driving courses will start for drivers with a valid driver’s license. If you approve them, you get two extra points on the card, up to a maximum of 15.

Annex VIII of the Traffic and Road Safety Act states that “safe and economical driving courses aim to train drivers
different techniques to prevent accidents and reduce fuel consumption and polluting emissions, preparing the driver to deal with hazardous situations, applying good driving and equipment practices, and avoiding risky behaviour”.

These bikes were originally intended for motorcyclists, one of the most vulnerable groups in road accidents, but it was decided to extend the content to other vehicle users.

The courses are already thematically defined and the accreditation of trainers is expected to start on January 9, 2023 in Madrid, Seville, Zaragoza, León and Albacete. These have a theoretical exam and a practical exam.

After the tests, the DGT is expected to announce the courses that have been accredited and can be approved to receive the two credits, provided there is a positive balance. These have a minimum duration of six hours between theory and practice and can be taken once every two years to receive the bonus.
