KOTA SAMARAHAN: When Azreil Mirzza Iskandar signed up for a driving course at Institute Memandu NB Motors Sdn Bhd (IMNB), he never guessed he would be the proud owner of a brand new Perodua Viva – before even getting his licence.

The 18-year-old was named winner of the grand prize to IMNB’s opening promotional lucky draw, which kicked off when the school opened at Kota Samarahan on Dec 26.

According to the driving school’s general manager Aaron Chong, they received over 1,000 entries from students who enrolled for courses.

“They qualify to join (the lucky draw) when they sign up for any of our courses, whether it’s motorcycle, car, lorry, trailer, bus, or Class B licence,” he told reporters yesterday at the prize-giving ceremony held at their centre.

Former Road Transport Department (JPJ) director-general Datuk Seri Solah Mat Hassan was present to hand over prizes to the winners.

In second place was Habedin Mazali, who won a Megelli 250CC motorcycle. Third prize of a 42-inch LCD TV went to Ummi Nur Hikmah Julaili, while Hasnah Sukor won an iPad Mini in fourth place.

There were also 10 consolation prize winners who each took home a RM50 Parkson cash voucher. They are Tony Angai, Jerry Steven Ilus, Baiesyah Mat Isof, Altken Cedric Lawrence, Dayang Nazirah Saptuel, Mazuan Deraup, Tharmizi Amit, Kelly Liza Jack Shaw, Boniface Igah Mingat and Rebecca Roslee.

IMNB managing director Datuk William Ngu Ung Wei, who is also a co-founder of NB Group of Companies, was also present at the prize-giving.
