Many drivers are participating in training courses offered by a local company, Solomon Safe Driving Hub, as the need for safe driving increases.
Solomon Safe Driving Hub director William Iro Biu told the Sunday Star that since he introduced the training courses many drivers submitted their interest to undergo training.
The company started introducing these driving courses in September last year.
Biu said since he started, the number of drivers participating increases.
He said many drivers were from private companies, government and non-government organisations, and individuals.
Biu said the fourth group of drivers who participated in the training graduated last week.
The training covered topics on road safety, knowing your vehicle and safe driving.
Biu said his company also offered practical sessions.
“Those who graduated last week will come back for practical soon,” Biu said.
He said as a driver, the first thing he or she needs to remember before sitting down behind the wheel is “your safety”.
Solomon Safe Driving Hub courses cost $1000.
Next training is expected to start this month.
