Hanako Moves Up A Gear
A young motorist from Pembrokeshire has steered into a cash prize after taking extra driving tuition.
Hanako Lander from Clunderwen has won £250 as the latest winner of the Pass Plus Cymru quarterly draw.
The 19 year-old’s name was drawn from a list of hundreds of young Welsh motorists who have recently completed the course aimed at making them better drivers. The post-driving test training programme provides young drivers with further tuition to help them improve their road skills.
Hanako, who works as a chef, said the course had been invaluable. “I learnt much more about road safety than I would have just to pass the driving test,” she said. “I definitely feel a lot safer on the road now and I would recommend it to other young drivers.”
Hanako was presented with her prize cheque at County Hall this week by Councillor Keith Lewis, Deputy Leader and Pembrokeshire County Council’s Road Safety Officer, Kirstie Donoghue.
Councillor Lewis praised Pass Plus Cymru as an important initiative. “Unfortunately young people are over represented in incident statistics across the country,” he said. “By educating newly-qualified drivers to improve their road skills and become more responsible, we hope to reduce the number of incidents they are involved in and save lives.”
