Road safety, buying a car and basic vehicle maintenance will be the focus of two Bendigo information sessions for people of refugee background next week.

The information sessions have been developed through a joint desire by Bendigo Community Health Services and Poyser Motor Group to help and support the refugee community.

The first information session at 5.30pm on Wednesday, April 19, will cover road safety and a step-by-step guide to buying a car, including insurance and finance.

The second information session at 6.30pm on Thursday, April 20, will cover basic car maintenance and include topics such as changing a tyre and checking oil or water.

“We are enormously grateful to Poyser Motor Group for their support and helping us to design information sessions that will increase the road safety and car awareness of new families settling in our city,” said Settlement Services team manager Martine Street.

The information sessions will be held at the Poyser Motor Group, 119-141 Midland Highway, Epsom.

Please RSVP for the information sessions by contacting our Settlement Services team on 5448 1600.
