The training will enable instructors “to better detect and better inform the clientele of the consequences and repercussions of the use of cannabis.”

The Driving School Association of Qubec (AECQ) has established an action plan to educate in-class and in-car instructors, as well as future drivers, in response to the legalization of recreational cannabis.

“This training will increase their level of knowledge and establish action plans for teachers, front-line workers and future drivers,” reports the Association des coles de conduite du Qubec, or AECQ. The association provides driving education to 40,000-plus young future drivers and has 180 owner-operators making up a network of more than 380 driving schools in the province.

Additionally, the training will enable instructors “to better detect and better inform the clientele of the consequences and repercussions of the use of cannabis in everyday life and, more particularly, at the wheel,” notes a statement from AECQ.

The actions taken are meant to “help raise awareness of the impact of the legalization of cannabis to all young people and especially to future drivers.”

The new training and intervention curriculum for driving school instructors has been developed in partnership with Alco Prevention Canada. AECQ further reports a partnership has been established with the global organization, A Drug Free World, which works to prevent and increase awareness of the harmful effects of drug use.

“This partnership will enable young drivers to obtain quality documentation on the harmful effects of using cannabis and other drugs,” the statement notes. Produced and distributed free of charge, “this same documentation will be available to all Quebec organizations involved in the prevention of drug use.”
