Vale Student Wins Pass Plus Cymru Quarterly Prize Draw
Chloe Cotter, from Penarth, was randomly selected by Road Safety Wales, as the winner of the latest Pass Plus Cymru quarterly prize draw. Chloe will receive £250, after she completed and returned an evaluation questionnaire on Pass Plus Cymru.
Pass Plus Cymru is an enhanced version of the standard Pass Plus course and is supported by the Driving Standards Agency.
It is a short expert-led higher driving course designed to develop techniques, increase awareness and widen experience. It is available to young people aged 17-25 in Wales for just £20 as the remaining cost is covered by the Welsh Government through grant funding to the local authorities.
Cllr Geoff Cox, Vale Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Services and Transport, presented Chloe with her cheque, and said, “Pass Plus Cymru is an excellent scheme to help young drivers build their driving confidence. I congratulate Chloe on completing the course and am pleased to present her with this cheque.”
Chloe said, “When I read an email saying I had won £250, I didn’t believe it at first, but I’m thrilled to have been chosen.
“I passed my driving test in May, and before I started the Pass Plus Cymru course in August, I did not enjoy driving on the motorway at all.
“The course helped further my driving experience, and has increased my confidence too.”
