The number of vehicles is increasing day by day so the students must be responsible with the vehicle they get at this young age as ‘Speed Thrills But Also Kills’. It has become a national mission to bring awareness about road safety measures. We felt it is the right place for students to get a learner’s license where they go every day to learn. The students must also be responsible to follow rules and wear a helmet.”
