All participants will have the opportunity to gain an in-depth knowledge on owning and operating a motor vehicle as well as share their experiences and thoughts with other participants and the trainer. AMW’s spokesperson emphasized on the fact that driving a vehicle is not only about adhering to the road rules, but a concerted exercise incorporating one’s knowledge and skills.
Being in the forefront of community service in Sri Lanka, AMW has organized this event for the benefit of the motoring fraternity of this country. Wickum Pradeep, AMW’s Marketing Manager for Suzuki vehicles commented – “when driving a vehicle on public roads, it is the moral obligation of all concerned to do so in a concentrated, understanding and responsible manner.
