PassPlus grant on of­fer

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Newly qual­i­fied driv­ers are be­ing urged to top up their mo­tor­ing skills with the help of a grant scheme.

Launched by South La­nark­shire Coun­cil, the scheme of­fers a £100 grant to­wards the cost of com­plet­ing the Pass Plus course.

Nor­mally priced at £140, Pass Plus in­volves six ses­sions which give peo­ple ex­pe­ri­ence of driv­ing in town, on ru­ral roads, in all weath­ers, on dual car­riage­ways and mo­tor­ways and also driv­ing in the dark.

It re­duces the risk of road traf­fic ac­ci­dents, helps to in­crease driv­ing com­pe­tency and par­tic­i­pants may also be en­ti­tled to cheaper car in­sur­ance.

Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang res­i­dents who have passed their driv­ing test in the past 12 months are in­vited to ap­ply for the grant.

Ap­pli­ca­tion forms, which can be down­loaded from the South La­nark­shire Coun­cil web­site, should be sub­mit­ted to the traf­fic and trans­porta­tion sec­tion.
