Logan Wins After Completing Pass Plus Cymru
The latest winner of the Pass Plus Cymru quarterly prize draw was Logan Davies, from Abertillery, Blaenau Gwent.
Logan was delighted to have won £250 and was randomly selected by Road Safety Wales after completing and returning his evaluation questionnaire about the Pass Plus Cymru course.
Logan attended the workshop element of Pass Plus Cymru at Tredegar Fire Station at the end of summer 2018 and completed the driving element of the course shortly after. The workshop is led by Road Safety Officers from Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council with the driving element supported by the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
The course is designed to develop techniques, widen experience, enable candidates to gain confidence and increase awareness of hazards they may encounter whilst driving. Logan paid £20 towards the course with the remaining course costs being funded by a local authority grant from the Welsh Government. The course is open to all drivers living in Wales aged 17 to 25.
Deputy Leader, Councillor Garth Collier was honoured to presented Logan with his cheque and said, “What a great course Pass Plus Cymru is and to be able to receive the additional driving experience for just £20 is excellent value for money. We would like to welcome more young drivers onto the course in order to gain valuable experience and become more aware of their surroundings and hazards when driving, in order to help make them safer drivers”.
Logan said, “I was thrilled when I won the prize money, I attended the course to lower my car insurance, which I was able to do and gained experience of driving on the motorways and on rural roads”. Logan plans to use the prize money towards maintaining his car or maybe towards a holiday.
