Focus on quality training
MSDS facilitates quality training through a hybrid curriculum which includes on-road driving situations and classroom training by experts. These experts provide training sessions to educate trainees on road behaviour, defensive driving, Good Samaritan Law, traffic rules and regulations amongst others. The courses offered by MSDS are specifically personalised in-line with the requirement of every applicant.

In 2020, MSDS introduced new courses customised for applicants who need more on-road practice. Apart from running various programs for novice and young learners, MSDS collaborates with various corporates, fleet owners and jointly conducts programs to suit their varied needs. The applicants are also given value added services such as license assistance and assistance on own car amongst others.

Meanwhile, in line with the shift towards digitisation, a mobile application and website has been curated and launched to provide enhanced experience to tech-proficient Maruti customers. Additionally, MSDS aims to host new digital content on the application as well as the website for customers to take theory lessons within their homes.

MSDS works closely with RTOs, traffic police, various NGOs and self-help groups to sensitize people and reduce road hazards.
