DSA launches Facebook competition
The DSA has launched its first Facebook competition in which people are invited to make their own videos designed to raise awareness of vehicle safety checks.
The competition seeks to raise awareness of vehicle safety checks, and show how important they are - not just for the driving test, but for life.
A video of a DSA examiner and three students from Bilborough College in Nottingham, discussing the ‘show me, tell me’ questions, is now on the DSA Facebook page. DSA is inviting people to make their own videos of vehicle safety checks and upload them to YouTube.
The videos will be judged on their information and entertainment value and TSO, DSA’s official publisher, has donated £50 Amazon vouchers for the three best entries.
