THE Coega Development Corporation (CDC) driver training programme has expanded its wings to the Northern Areas of Port Elizabeth, specifically the TVET College Dower Campus.

CDC’s chief financial officer, Lionel Billings, highlighted the importance of acquiring a skill such as driving.

“A driver’s licence improves one’s employability levels,” he said.

Since the start of the programme in 2012, the CDC has set the trend by affording previously disadvantaged youth between the ages of 18 and 35 the opportunity to obtain a driver’s licence for free.

As a result of the organisation’s incredible success in the programme, it has subsequently led to a record number of more than 3 760 youth throughout the country obtaining their driver’s licenses.

“Our success has led to institutions of higher learning like the TVET PE College Dower Campus seeking our assistance in implementing the programme on their behalf,” concluded Billings.
