Aberbargoed teen wins £250 through safer driving
A newly qualified motorist has won a £250 cash prize after signing up to course to make her a safer driver.
Rebeca James, 18, from Aberbargoed, was entered into a prize draw when she signed up for the Pass Plus scheme after her test.
Pass Plus is an extra set of lessons new drivers can take to help make them safer drivers as well as helping to keep the cost of their car insurance down.
Rebeca’s £250 prize was donated by breakdown firm GEM Motoring Assist.
David Williams, the company’s chief executive, said: “We are delighted to donate the prizes for this safer driving initiative. GEM Motoring Assist believes that early in one’s driving career it is important to learn how to identify and manage risk in today’s traffic conditions. To this end Pass Plus Cymru ticks all the right boxes.”
On receiving her prize Rebeca, who is a student at the University of Wales, said: “It was great to get the extra training with a professional after I passed my test – and to get the training for just £20 was even better.”
Rebeca’s prize was presented by Councillor Rob Gough, the council’s cabinet member for transportation and planning.Follow @CaerphillyObsvr
