The Automobile Association has developed a driving school website that includes functionality to book lessons and schedule driving instructors.
The initiative is one of a series of projects to revamp the motoring group's IT.
Trevor Didcock, director of IS at the AA, said the site enabled pupils to book lessons over the web and allow instructors to manage their schedules. The web application also sends out SMS alerts to remind pupils and instructors about lessons.
Developed by Indian offshore development house Mascom, the web driving school application is based on Microsoft's .net architecture and a SQL Server relational database.
The system, which replaces a legacy Dataflex application, will enable greater automation of administrative tasks and improve billing, Didcock said.
