…automatic car for people with disabilities
Junior Driving School has done it again! This time with the introduction of Class 3 driving lessons as well as an automatic car meant for people living with disabilities.
This makes Junior Driving School the first driving school in the province to offer lessons for all road traffic vehicles under one roof.
The latest introduction means that for only US$100, one is guaranteed the right to drive any motorcycle, regardless of type and size.
Dubbed the 'Oxford University' of driving owing to its unparalleled services and successes, Junior Driving School is inspired to address the driving needs of all people by bringing a one-stop driving shop for the whole southern region.
As recently as mid-2016, the driving school only offered classes 4 and 2 but it went on to raise the bar by introducing Class 1 and now Class 3, all within a short period of time.
Moved by the desire to make everyone their own drivers, Junior Driving School has also introduced the automatic vehicle which is tailor made for people living with disabilities so that they too can drive themselves on the roads.
Junior Driving School director Noah Marima said they were determined to make sure that there remains no unlicenced driver on the country's roads.
"We started with classes 2 and 4 before upgrading to Class 1 when we bought our bus so the thrust is to make sure that motorists and prospective motorists are given the skills needed for them to drive safely and in accordance with the law.
"We are pleased that we have now managed to respond to our community's need for Class 3 which deals with training people on how to ride motorcycles," Marima said.
He said the driving school was proud that it had also responded to calls to accommodate people living with disabilities by making available the automatic vehicle which was tailored to suit their special needs.
"People living with disabilities especially in this part of the country did not have a chance to be their own drivers but that is now a thing of the past. With the new car, they can now come and register with us so that they do not let other people drive them," said Marima.
In Masvingo, Junior Driving School and others used to share only one test yard which had become congested but Junior Driving has since found its own training yard near the provincial show grounds where its students have amble time to practise without any hassles.
"We have escaped the congestion at the old training yard by securing a piece of land which is exclusively reserved for students of Junior Driving School.
"Our students will have the real road experience because when they drive to the yard, they will be sharing the road with other road users, an experience which improves their experience," said Marima.
Junior Driving School has also spread its wings to peri-urban areas and growth points of Masvingo where oral lessons are offered to prepare students for their provisional licences.local
