Every week, we will pick one lucky school to visit. Autodealer will arrange a suitable date and driving.co.za will visit the school with the simulator and a trainer to give Grade 11 and 12 learners a chance to pick up on some basics of defensive driving, which can reduce their risk of crashing by up to half. Learners can look forward to seeing their pictures and comments in Autodealer on our weekly feedback page.
After a learner has completed their drive, they will be given a printout of how they did and the trainer will send them a discount code by e-mail, entitling them to a 40 percent discount on any driving.co.za course for themselves and up to seven other friends or family members.
Learners who complete a driving.co.za course will be able to enter the essay competition. Their essay, of no more than 200 words, must discuss any road safety topic and be submitted to Autodealer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Every three months, Autodealer’s editorial and managerial staff will select the top essay and the winner will receive their choice of a 125cc scooter or motorcycle from Puzey Motorcycles.
The fantastic prizes, courtesy of Puzey, include a Bladez Jet 125 scooter, or its sibling, the Bladez G-Wizz 125. Both scooters are powered by an air-cooled four-stroke 125cc engine and will use around 3.4 litres/100km.
Tuned with a top speed of 85km/h and weighing in at a mere 125kg, these lightweight and funky scooters are perfect for those starting out, thanks to the twist-and-go automatic transmission.
If you’re hoping to own a motorcycle, Puzey has also made the Keeway TXM 125 and Keeway RKS 125 available. Powered by a single-cylinder, four-stroke 125cc motor this five-speed machine can reach top speeds of 95km/h and averages around 4.0 litres/100km.
Available as a road bike or super motard guise, these two lookers will surely get you from A to B in style and could be yours when you enter the Autodealer Safety Drive competition.
And of course, at the end of 2015, the four winning essays will be submitted to a panel of independent judges and the overall winner will be handed the keys to their new car. With only four finalists in the running, it is sure to be a nailbiting affair, so contact Autodealer now to ensure your school participates!
