Autocenter Goedert Young Drivers Day is back!
The countdown for Luxembourg’s first and only national road safety event has started. On 13th July 2013, the Centre de Formation pour Conducteurs and Goodyear‘s Proving Grounds will be hosting the third edition of the Autocenter Goedert Young Drivers Day on Goodyear's Proving Grounds.
Under the leadership of the non-profit organisation Young Drivers a.s.b.l., the continuous patronage of the Ministry of sustainable Development and Infrastructures and the support of our partners and sponsors, this event now celebrates its third anniversary and has quickly risen to a popular training day for young drivers. Marc Lis, initiator and creator of this event, will continue to manage this project and set the scene for yet another successful day.
The Autocenter Goedert Young Drivers Day is for young drivers aged 18-24. At the National Training Centre in Colmar Berg, 120 participants will be given the chance to take part in 12 workshops dedicated to increase their road safety awareness and better their driving skills for an entire day..
