Journey of MSDS - Where we are, Where we are going

Our inception

Maruti Suzuki Driving School (MSDS) was established in the year 2000 with our first driving school being set up at

Where we are

Since its inception, MSDS has trained more than a million individuals. As of 2019, Maruti Suzuki Driving School has more than 475+ driving schools and is now present in more than 200 cities across the country. During the last five years alone, more than 5 lakh people have received training.

Maruti Suzuki Driving School has also been passionate about empowering women. 46% of the individuals who received training from MSDS have been women.

Thanks to expert trainers who are associated with MSDS, the trainees are able to understand about road culture, defensive driving, Good Samaritan Law, traffic laws, etc. The courses offered by MSDS are scientifically designed and customized training is offered keeping in mind that every individual’s need is different.

MSDS also manages seven IDTRs (Institute of Driving and Traffic Research) all across the country in partnership with respective State Governments. These institutes play a key role in setting driving standards as well as ensuring quality training to aspiring drivers.

Where we are going

By 2020, MSDS aspires to train more than 15 lakh individuals. It plans to expand its driving school network to . MSDS also plans to hire more trainers. These trainers will continue to undergo rigorous driving training and complete refresher courses regularly.

Maruti Suzuki Driving School vs. Others

With more than 475+ driving schools across the nation and having trained more than a million individuals since the last decade and a half, Maruti Suzuki Driving School has already proven itself to be the leading driver training institute in India. MSDS has embarked on a mission to redefine the road culture in India. However, this is easier said than done. In 2017 alone, close to 1.5 lakh individuals died in road deaths across India. To put this number in perspective, it is equivalent to the entire population of Shillong which is the capital of Meghalaya. Even though India has been a signatory to the Brasilia Declaration and has committed to reducing road fatalities by half, our country hasn’t been able to reduce the number of road accidents. Over-speeding, improper actions of drivers and overtaking are some of the leading reasons for road fatalities. These can be easily avoided by imparting the right type of training.

Driver safety is of utmost importance at the driving school, and before we get you in front of the steering wheel, we ensure that you have a strong foundation in road safety and road culture. Let us check out some salient features of MSDS: -

Know your car, know the law

More than 4 000 individuals were killed in 2016 because drivers had either jumped the red light or had jumped lanes. While most other driving schools in the country neglect classroom sessions, our comprehensive course lays as great an emphasis on theory as it does on the practice of handling and maintaining a vehicle and maintaining traffic decorum. The course gives you an in-depth understanding of the vehicle and the best way to maintain it, about traffic laws as well as knowledge about insurance policies and claim settlements.

World-Class Facilities

Maruti Suzuki Driving Schools operate in an environment of ample space which enables the students to avail various facilities. There are spacious classrooms, the latest driving simulators as well as areas for students to practice different forms of parking. The simulators mimic real-time traffic and enable you to experience tricky driving conditions such as extreme weathers, including fog and snow. Our instructors are experienced as well as qualified and most importantly passionate about the cause of defensive driving

Structured Teaching Methodology

As soon as they enrol, students are given a joining kit which includes a progress card. The beginners’ course is a 21-day course which covers 21 hours comprising 7 hours of theory, 2.5 hours of simulation and 10 hours of practical. These are taught simultaneously which enable students to appreciate the importance of different components. Exams are conducted at the end of the course so that students are clear about the fundamental theory and well-versed with the Central Motor Vehicles Rules, 1989. Students are also given a handbook which outlines rules and responsibilities for drivers.

An unmatched on-road experience

With only one trainee per car and a fleet of training vehicles to choose from, our on-road training includes practical lessons most driving schools fail to touch upon.
