The project is to help driving school students with practical skills at fuel service stations
Czech Republic’s largest fuel retail network and part of the Unipetrol Group, Benzina, in a joint pilot project with the Autoclub of the Czech Republic (ACR) has decided to cooperate with fifty driving schools all over the Czech Republic during which the pupils will try practical skills, such as refueling and car washing in an automatic car wash. The project is expected to steadily expand to two hundred driving schools.
Agnieszka Bobrukiewicz, head of Benzina’s marketing department said, “Beginning drivers are always a little nervous - not only on the road but also at a fuel service station. Every one of us has been through this. That’s why we will offer the driving school pupils an opportunity to try all these activities at our filling stations so that they’re not stressed during their actual first visit.”
“We care about the largest possible amount of practical training of our future drivers. That’s why we are a partner of the project since we consider supporting the new drivers’ skills to be an important contribution to the road safety improvement.” says Radek Prochazka, ACR’s project manager.
Dozens of driving schools will be supported by the Czech Republic’s largest fuel retail network, providing them with its stations so that the pupils can prepare for all the “pitfalls” waiting for them in such places.
The pupils will also try, during their driving course, to drive in a fuel service station, park their car near a fuel dispenser and refuel, inflate the tires, or add a solution in the windscreen washer. PWKD12102017
