How many Thais can afford this education

New drivers license requirements have been proposed.  Every new or renewal applicant must undergo 15 hours of driver training at a cost of up to 6,000 baht.  In Thailand's 76 provinces there are less than 100 certified driving schools.   
The plan has to be modified.  There aren't enough schools to handle the demand.  
Just like you can at many private schools in Thailand, you can probably get your license for the right price without ever attending.    
What's the sense of rules when they are not uniformly enforced and allow corruption to flourish.
Farm vehicle sales, including three wheeled motorcycles, will probably benefit. No license needed.
 In my days high schools offered driving classes.  I received a student drivers license, which mean a licensed driver had to be in the vehicle with me.  I learned driving in a VW bus.
