A course that could provide young Newtown motorists with a reduction in their  car insurance is being offered later this month.

Pass Plus Cymru is a road safety scheme being offered to young drivers by Powys County Council’s Road Safety Unit.
 
Aimed at young drivers aged 17-25 years old and who hold a full driving licence, the course consists of a 2.5 hour theory session, followed by a nine hour practical session with an approved driving instructor.

The practical session includes motorway driving, night driving and driving in cities.
 
The course will take place at Newtown Fire Station on Thursday, 28 September, but must be booked in advance.
 
The course will cost £20 for participants as the Road Safety Unit will pay the remaining £80 thanks to the Welsh Government funding.
 
Cllr Liam Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “Ensuring that our roads are safe is hugely important for our county. I would urge young drivers across Powys to take advantage of this fantastic scheme.
 
“These courses are so important because they provide better driving skills and could ultimately help save lives.”
