Pass Plus numbers top 500
More than 500 newly qualified drivers have taken advantage of South Lanarkshire Council’s subsidised Pass Plus scheme.
The scheme helps newly qualified drivers gain valuable driving experience. Topics covered include driving in town, all weather driving, driving out of town, night driving, driving on dual carriageways and driving on motorways.
Chair of South Lanarkshire Council’s Road Safety Forum, councillor John Murray, said: “This is a great initiative and I am delighted so many newly qualified drivers have taken advantage of it.
“It is a pro-active approach to road safety and provides them with the necessary skills and knowledge to cope with varying road conditions.”
