PCYC Gladstone recently celebrated the graduation of four youths from their Braking the Cycle Program. The graduates have completed their 100 hours of supervised driving and are ready to now move up from their Learner’s Permits to their Provisional Drivers Licence.
Braking the Cycle Program Coordinator Lauren Coles praised the program participants. “We had a wonderful afternoon celebrating our young people that have reached (or almost reached) their 100 hours. These young people have shown dedication and commitment, always come with a smile and are willing to learn. I am so proud of them all, they will be competent, safe P platers,” she said. The graduates complete their supervised driving hours in cars supplied by the PCYC. Ms Coles said they have both manual and automatic vehicles.
The Braking the Cycle Program has been delivered with the assistance of a dedicated group of three volunteer mentors who support the learner drivers on their journey. The program has been facilitated by the PCYC and is funded with grant money received from the Motor Insurance Accident Commission.
