They do bad work and send students far too quickly to the CBR to take a theory or practical exam.

For example, driving instructors have been required to issue a Certificate of Good Conduct for a number of years now. A new weapon in the fight against shady types and inexperienced instructors is the ‘driving school finder’, on the CBR site. Here you can view the success rate per driving school. You can also see how many drivers a driving school has actually delivered. Because a driving school with only a few graduates is of course not immediately a reliable driving school.
