Cars driver training program
We've listened to local concerns about the number of serious road accidents involving young drivers.
Working together with local communities and the RACQ, we are delivering a program on behalf of Australia Pacific LNG that equips young drivers with the kind of driving skills and positive driving attitudes that could help save lives. Over 1,000 drivers have already benefited from past programs and Australia Pacific LNG is pleased to offer more places this year.
Who is eligible?
The Australia Pacific LNG Caring About Road Safety (CARS) program is a program run annually through schools in Dalby, Miles, Tara, Chinchilla, Roma, Moura and Biloela, and we have places available for students aged over 16 who have a Queensland learner license. Participants must bring their valid Queensland learner license on the day and meet all legal requirements to drive.
What does it cost?
Students will only pay $50 to participate in the driver training program instead of $320, as Australia Pacific LNG is subsidising over 80% of the cost to make sure as many students as possible can participate.
CARS Cup Challenge
We are pleased to announce that the CARS Cup is up for grabs again in 2014!
Congratulations to Miles State High School for being the 2013 CARS Cup Challenge winner. They received $1000 to spend on sports equipment or educational resources for their school, and the coveted CARS Cup trophy engraved with their school name. The CARS Cup trophy will be proudly displayed at their school until the 2014 winner is announced.
Congratulations also to the runner up, Moura State High School.
This year we are introducing an exciting new component to the CARS Cup Challenge - a Safety Presentation and Crash Display, in addition to re-introducing the e-learning component via a group in-class session (dependent on school computer access).
We encourage all participating CARS driver training schools to vie for the CARS Cup and the $1000 cash prize. The school with the highest combined average participation, e-learning module score and correct average quiz scores over all program components will be the CARS Cup winner.
