PMV driver comp to start

FEB 1 will see the start of the MVIL PMV driver competition, which is open to every licensed class six PMV driver and will provide 15 drivers an all expenses paid trip to attend the 2010 NRL grand final in Sydney, Australia.

Those drivers interested are asked to register quickly from Feb 1 at any MVIL traffic registry office or MVIL agency. Licensed PMV drivers will need to complete the "NRL DRIVERS COMPETITION" entry form and provide their license to be eligible to register in the competition. The application period closes strictly on Feb 26.

The competition is set up to encourage good driving practice and driver responsibility for passenger safety, and in turn rewards responsible driving. It is directly aligned with the new MVIL initiated campaign ROAD SAFETY - it's not a GAME.

So be sure not to pass on this once in a lifetime opportunity to be hosted by NRL stars Paul Aiton and Neville Costigan at the 2010 NRL grand final in Sydney. The clock is running and there will be no extra time.
The first 5000 drivers to register will each receive a specially designed "it's not a game" players' shirt, as well as football logo stickers, vehicle flag and passenger limit stickers to be fitted on each registering driver's vehicle.

 Conditions of the competition are:
  • The competition will be open for PMV driver registration from Feb 1 to Feb 26 and will commence from March 1, 2010 through to Aug 31, 2010.
  • To be eligible to be in the draw for the NRL grand final prize, drivers must not incur any driving infringement notices during this time.
  • Drivers caught drink driving, speeding, overloading or driving in a manner dangerous to the public will be removed from the competition by a special task force set up to monitor and police the PMV drivers. Task force members will each be equipped with breathalisers and speed radar guns and will carry infringement notice books to issue written notice to rule breakers.
  • Drivers caught breaking the rules will not receive fines but will be removed from the competition at the first notice, as will any driver who fails to stop at any roadblock set up for the NRL Driver Competition.
  • All drivers that remain in the competition at the end of Aug will be placed in the draw to be one of 15 to attend the 2010 NRL grand final. Winners will be flown from destinations within PNG to Port Moresby and depart to Sydney for the grand final on Sat, Oct 2. 
  • All winners are required to hold or be able to obtain passports valid for minimum one year from date of departure.
  • The 15 drivers will witness the grand final from premium seats and will have all meals and accommodation provided, travel in Sydney on an air-conditioned coach and stay two nights at a leading Sydney Hotel.
