Practise your driving, then gas up
Each year, SGI rewards learner drivers across the province for practising their driving skills.
For a chance to win one of 10 $250 gas cards, learner drivers simply need to record any practice time they receive in-car from a qualified supervising driver.
"We recommend learner drivers log a minimum of 36 hours under different driving conditions over their nine-month learning period," said Sandy Crighton, SGI's Manager of Driver Programs. "The information recorded in your practice log will help you focus on the skills you need to improve before going for your road test."
After logging 36 pratice hours, learner drivers submit their practice log to the driver examiner at the time of their road test, or mail it to SGI. SGI then randomly chooses 10 winners from all practice logs submitted during the year.
In 2010, the winners of the $250 gas cards were:
- Brooke Malinoski, Melville
- Clayton Switzer, Pierceland
- David Huston, Saskatoon
- David Waldner, Kyle
- Kennedy Keith, Biggar
- Kyle Wasylowich, Saskatoon
- Samuel Robins, Saskatoon
- Taylor Herman, Middle Lake
- Taylor Hudson, Moose Jaw
- Taylor O'Donnell, Turtleford
"The practice log incentive program encourages learner drivers to gain the valuable driving experience they need prior to trying for their licence," said Crighton. "Learner drivers with more in-car experience develop safe driving habits and are often more successful in passing their road test on the first try."
