Calling out all P-license drivers, college and university students! Volkswagen Passenger Cars Malaysia (VPCM) is hosting its inaugural “Polo P” project to help you polish your driving skills from Probationary to Professional.

VPCM will be touring around selected college and university campuses around peninsular Malaysia to conduct this Young Drivers Training programme. Participants will be taught essential skills to be safer drivers on the road.

During the session, participants will be taught the basics of car maintenance, visual checkpoints, proper sitting and steering positions. Participants will also be getting some hands-on practice during the defensive driving exercise which includes emergency braking and a slalom course.

The “Polo P” project kicked off at UTAR Sg Long Campus last weekend (25 & 26 March) but in case you’ve missed it, below are dates and campus venues of the upcoming “Polo P” tour:

Date Location
25 & 26 March UTAR, Sungai Long
8 & 9 April Nilai University, Seremban
8 & 9 July Taylor’s University Lakeside Campus, Subang Jaya
19 & 20 August Sunway College, Johor Bahru

To register and get updates on future locations of the “Polo P” project, hop onto Volkswagen Malaysia’s website or send a private message on Volkswagen Malaysia Facebook page.

All driving exercises will be conducted in the Volkswagen Polo 1.6L hatchback, which packs a 1.6-litre MPI four-cylinder and a six-speed automatic gearbox developing 104 hp and 153 Nm of torque. In case you didn’t know, this exact Polo is priced at RM69,888 for a limited time, the most affordable Volkswagen to go with the “VW” registration plates don’t you think?
