Practising pays off for 10 learner drivers
March 5, 2014
Ten learner drivers across the province have each won a $250 gas card from SGI, just for practising their driving skills.
The lucky winners were entered into SGI's yearly draw when they tracked their in-car hours using the practice log for new drivers and submitted the log to SGI. This year's winners of a $250 gas card are:
- Braden Coad, Weyburn
- Calla Giesbrecht, Bruno
- Callie Wilson, Saskatoon
- Courtney Cochrane, Moose Jaw
- Gabriella Fortugno, Saskatoon
- Kylee Stevenson, Saskatoon
- Malachy Jones, Saskatoon
- Marina Straub, North Battleford
- Nathan Balas, Saskatoon
- Tyson Sanderson, Rosetown
To help gain driving experience, learner drivers are encouraged to log a minimum of 36 hours under various driving conditions over their nine-month learning period.
“The more practice a learner driver can get before taking their road test, the better,” said Ciaran Downes, Manager of Driver Development at SGI. “SGI’s reward program provides that extra incentive for learner drivers to gain the driving skills they need to be safe on the road.”
To be eligible for the reward program, learner drivers must submit their practice log with 36 hours completed to the driver examiner at the time of their road test, or mail it to SGI.
