Great drive for apprentices
A group of Texaco Chevron apprentices has been given the opportunity to improve their driving skills through an initiative organised by Pembrokeshire’s road safety team.
The 37 apprentices took part in an advanced driving course as part of the oil company’s recent annual safety week. The Pass Plus Cymru Course involves a two-and-half hour driving theory session and a nine-hour shared drive with an approved Pass Plus Cymru driving instructor. It also includes motorway driving and city driving.
Chevron is the first company in Wales to use Pass Plus Cymru to improve the driving skills of its young apprentices.
The Welsh Assembly Government sponsors the advanced driving course programme through the local road safety grant, while Chevron also contributes 50% towards the cost of the scheme.
