OMV Serbia sponsors the "1000 young drivers" campaign

  • Free safe-driving training in NAVAK for young drivers from 27 cities in Serbia
  • OMV filling stations the starting point for training of participants
  • Applications for the training begins September 10, 2014 on the website of the Ministry of Interior

OMV Serbia is sponsoring the "1000 young drivers" campaign of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Serbia and the National Driving Academy (NAVAK), with the goal to provide free safe driving training for motorists who have acquired their probationary licenses during 2014.

The campaign will run for the next two months and will include drivers from 27 cities in Serbia. OMV filling stations will be the starting points for all drivers who apply to participate in the free training.

Statistics show that young drivers cause more accidents than others. Therefore, special attention should be paid to improving the skills of those drivers who have recently acquired their driving licenses and may be inexperienced. OMV, as a socially responsible company, actively supports socially responsible projects that aim to increase road safety of participants.

"We are glad that we have opportunity to be involved in finding a solution to this huge issue for our society, with consequences that take so many lives on Serbian roads. OMV invites young drivers from all over Serbia to seize this opportunity and sign up for free safe-driving training, where they will gain the necessary knowledge and thus positively impact the situation," said Nebojsa Skero OMV Serbia Team Leader Marketing.

Participants of the safe driving training will have an opportunity to learn a range of skills from the experts at the NAVAK centers, such as how to brake on dry and slippery surfaces, and which speeds are the most dangerous under different conditions. Applications for the training session are open from September 10, 2014, and training for young drivers will be implemented over the next two months. The training for participants is completely free and the starting point for all participants will be at OMV filling stations in the 27 cities in which this campaign is conducted.

More details on the application process and the training schedule can be obtained on the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs
