    Justification for Article 7.4:

    Road safety - Emergency vehicle drivers exercise their profession in a more shifting environment than under normal driving conditions. It requires advanced traffic skills to master complex driving tasks safely and efficiently in traffic. In order to carry out emergency missions in a qualitatively good way it is important that the emergency vehicle driver has the personal qualities and professional expertise required. To develop such competence we depend on skilled instructors. Instructors are faced with the challenging task of communicating knowledge and experience of emergency driving in a good educational manner so that the goals and intentions of the curriculum are fulfilled in the best way possible. To educate highly qualified emergency vehicle drivers requires competent instructors. We have therefore introduced a minimum requirement for emergency vehicle driving instructors.
