Datsun’s driver’s license tips - nothing standing between you and the open road!
Datsun is working to put more South Africans behind the wheel. As a part of this, the vehicle manufacturer partnered with two young professionals and supported them as they received their driver’s licenses.
Last year, Datsun introduced South Africa to Mpumi Nkosi at the launch of its all-new Datsun GO. Like millions of young professionals around the country, Mpumi relies on public transport to get around.
She uses taxis and e-hailing services to commute between Soweto, where she lives, Sandton, where she works, and – until recently – the Tshwane University of Technology, where she completed her BTech in Journalism. Her friend Phindile Xaba, follows a similar route and combines her work in Johannesburg with part-time studies in education at the University of South Africa in Pretoria.
In participating in the Datsun GO launch, Mpumi calculated that for just R500 more than what she was spending on public transport every month; she could be paying off a new Datsun GO in 72 months.
As such, Datsun helped Mpumi and her friend Phindile tackle the final hurdle standing between her and the open road and assisted them with the driving license process.
Datsun is passionate about enabling more young professionals, such as Mpumi and Phindile, with this important steppingstone to securing their independence. As such, herewith a few tips provided to make this process a little easier:
“We at Datsun couldn’t be more excited. Empowering aspirational youngsters like Mpumi and Phindile to get one step closer to this kind of independence, is what we stand for as a business. Our vehicles are the perfect fit for them, and we aim to empower many more South Africans in the coming years,” says head of Datsun South Africa, Hideyuki Kuwayama.
