Gwynedd Council supports Pass Plus Cymru for young drivers

Gwynedd Council is supporting the Road Safety Wales initiative which aims to tackle the high number of young drivers and passengers involved in road traffic accidents each year.

The Pass Plus Cymru scheme is aimed at young drivers between the ages of 17 and 25, who have recently passed their test, and to give them extra driving skills and experience to help reduce the risk of being involved in road traffic collisions.

Gwynedd Council’s Road Safety Unit recently visited the campuses of Coleg Meirion Dwyfor at Glynllifon, Pwllheli and Dolgellau to promote the scheme. Pass Plus Cymru  focuses on driving on rural country roads as well, the motorway, as well as during the night, coping with busy towns and cities and improving driving techniques and hazard awareness.
Councillor Dafydd Meurig, Gwynedd Council’s Cabinet Member who leads on road safety said:

“As well as reducing the risk of a young driver being involved in a crash, taking part in the Pass Plus Cymru scheme will also allow participants to save money on car insurance. It is a brilliant scheme which should be taken advantage of.”
