As of an injunction granted by federal judge Daniel Paes Ribeiro, the mandatory use of a Vehicle Driving Simulator (SDV) for those who take the National Driver's License (CNH) in Goiás was suspended. The request was made by the Federal Public Ministry (MPF), which highlighted that the measure could cause damage to citizens, who "will be prevented from obtaining their driver's licenses". It was understood by the magistrate that Resolution 543/2015, of the National Traffic Council (Contran), and Ordinance 162/2016, of the Goiás State Traffic Department (Detran-GO), “extrapolate the principles of legality and reasonableness”. This is because the use of the equipment is not provided for in the Brazilian Traffic Code (CTB). The mandatory use of SDV in driver training centers took effect on January 4th. In Goiás, the processes were blocked because the driving schools did not have the equipment and the candidates were not able to schedule the practical classes. At the time, 19,000 cases were stopped and the Detran-GO ended up making an agreement with the driving schools. In this way, the driver training centers (CFCs) signed contracts for the rental of simulators and a new deadline for the start of the obligation was established for May 1st. There was also a new extension until July 1st, but so far the processes are being released without classes in SDVs. The Association of Driver Training Centers of Goiás (Ascefego) said that not all driving schools have access to the equipment and, even so, the Detran-GO ends up releasing the processes. As a result, the CFCs that leased the machines didn't even use them.“We were forced to make lease agreements, as we didn't have the simulators, but we are not using them, as practical classes in vehicles are replacing them. Our concern with this injunction is that it will be overturned again, that is, now they suspend the obligation and later go back. What if we terminate the contracts and then demand it again? They need to make up their minds”, said Ascefego's financial director, Derli Fernandes de Oliveira.
