Digital Safety Riding Courses
SDG 3: Good health and well-being, 4: Quality education
The Honda Safety Traffic Training Centers in Brazil (CETH in Portuguese) offers safe riding courses about traffic safety to customers, the government and companies, focused on motorcyclists who already have some skill in riding.
The course aims to improve riding techniques and develop skills in safe motorcycle riding to face any situation in traffic, and includes content such as posture, emergency braking and driving strategy in traffic (blind spots, motorcycle positioning, etc.).
Free driver training is offered to fleet companies and public agencies, such as police and firefighters, from all regions of Brazil and also from other countries in South America.
Due to the pandemic situation this year, the course was changed to a digital format and 3,201 people participated.
