"I just wanted to thank you for the great night my husband and sons had at Parents and P Platers. They all found the night to be very well organised and they learnt a lot from it. Each of the presenters were very interesting and engaging. My youngest who is just learning to drive even got to change a tyre and check the oil! They were all made to feel very welcome by your staff. Creating a night like this is such a contribution to the community as a whole , keeping our young drivers safer on the road. Thank you again to all the team at Grand Motors Southport."

"I just wanted to give you some feedback as this was a most valuable program for young people starting out or in their early years of driving. Gabby was keen to attend and learnt a lot about a vehicle and its simple engine care, tyre changing, demonstration of an airbag and the engineering/mechanics of air bags, correct positioning in a vehicle, driving rules but most valuable and poignant of all was the message that came from our Fire and Rescue Service and the Qld Police in relation to safe driving, drinking and texting, peer pressure and the consequences/results of accidents. This was a real eye opener to all in attendance to hear first hand of the impact of the decisions some of our young people make in relation to driving. If the opportunity arises again for attendance at this free community service event I would suggest that our students in Yr 11 and 12 are advised directly of the invitation and it’s worth. Especially now that funding has been cut for the Qld Fire and Rescue to attend schools and deliver a road safety presentation as they were able to in the past and also given the current attitude of a minority of our Year 12 young drivers! Gabby and Kyra learnt a great deal and it has made our family think about our driving habits and make some positive changes! I thank Grand Motors Toyota for their efforts in coordinating and hosting the event and look forward to spreading the word to our senior school community should the opportunity arise again"
