However, the research revealed the need to restructure the pedagogical practice adopted by the Escola de Trânsito do DETRAN for the training and improvement of instructors, since the research participants revealed dissatisfaction with the activities and with the teachers who taught the course. Therefore, a political intervention in the organizational model is suggested so that the Escola de Trânsito can raise the level of satisfaction of instructors to enroll in new editions of the course.
