EC drivers equipped at the first Drivers Yellow Card camp

11 Nov,2015Training

The Eastern Cape recently conducted their Drivers Yellow Card Training Camp which was the first in the province since the programme was established.

The camp was held at the Wriggleswade Dam where 32 drivers attended for five days and were educated on fire fighting fundamentals, vehicle fire line safety, safety and survival elements, radio communication and they also got assessed on night driving.

One of the drivers who attended the camp, Nontle Nqunqa, said that she has learnt a lot from this camp and from now on she will be a much better and safer driver.

“I enjoyed everything that we were taught during these five days and I wish this type of training camp happens often so that we can get an opportunity to get together as drivers and learn from each other as we have different experiences which we can share with each other,” she said.

The Eastern Cape Transport Officer, Xolile Gulwa, said that the drivers were also tested on physical fitness which will assist them not to get tired easily when driving long distances.
