      Minister Asked to Look at Cost of Driver Training


      Acting on behalf of the Young Leadership of Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party), Member of Knesset Yoni Chetboun wrote to Transportation Minister Yisrael Katz, Monday, asking him to examine the high cost of driver training. Among the causes noted in the letter was the removal of price controls on lessons and tests.

      Among the other things Chetboun pointed out were taxes that driving teachers have to pay, acknowledging that as one factor not directly under the purview of the Transportation Ministry.
