Brittany’s first travelling socially-responsible driving school
The organisation developed an interest in mobility in the form of socially-responsible rental after acquiring eight vehicles following the closing of a socially-responsible garage in Vannes. For two years, it has been experimenting a basic Highway Code training course with the help of the departmental council.
In June the organisation launched a study with a view to opening Brittany’s first-ever travelling socially-responsible driving school, in late 2015. A travelling school is particularly adapted to the rural area in question with its employment issues and dispersed public transport system. The organisation has already identified some 20 candidates with an average age of 30 to 35.
The training will be given on a full-day basis, two days a week over a ten-week period, the idea being to favour group cohesion and focus on the objective of obtaining the licence. The Foundation’s support consists of the donation of a Peugeot 208 with dual controls.
