Got what it takes to be a Gran-bassador?

We’re looking for four Gran-bassadors. It’s an important role. You’ll be helping spread the word about safe driving and helping to promote the campaign ideas. After all, if we all drive like Gran’s in the car, Scotland’s roads will be a lot safer – particularly for young drivers like you.

  • You and your fellow Gran-bassadors will join a 30-to-60-minute call each month.
  • You’ll produce one piece of content every 3 months for the Scottish Government.
