The fun and award-winning Child Safety Initiative road safety campaign of Volkswagen Philippines is going back to Cebu this weekend—March 9 to 11—at The Gallery on Level 1 of the new wing of Ayala Center Cebu. As you know, the VW CSI is a mini driving school for children that has taught road safety to more than 10,000 kids since its first activation in 2015.

The campaign has a specially designed Junior Driving Course for children aged four to eight years. It uses miniature simulated roads and toy vehicles to make learning interesting and engaging for its very young students. And when they finish the course, the little ones earn a “junior driver’s license.”

Volkswagen Philippines believes that the best way to instill a deep sense of responsible motoring in people is to start educating them when they’re still small and have not yet developed any bad driving habits.

This weekend’s stop in Cebu will commence at 11am and end at 7pm from Friday to Sunday. If you want to enroll your children, you may preregister them by contacting Angie Antonio at (032) 401-2674 or (0906) 292-8315.

And while your kids are busy with their driving course, you may check out the Volkswagen Jetta, which will be made available for test drive at the event. Youngsters don’t have to have all the fun, you know.
