Honda Affiliate to Open New Safety Driving Centre in Singapore.

Singapore, June 9, 2010 - (JCN Newswire) - Singapore Safety Driving Centre Ltd. (SSDC), a Honda affiliate company, has relocated from Ang Mo Kio (in central Singapore) to Woodlands (in northern Singapore) and today held a ceremony to commemorate the official opening of its new safety driving centre which includes the first full-scale multi-story driving circuit in Southeast Asia. Equipped with a 3-story driving circuit that makes effective use of limited land, the new facility is the only safety driving centre in Singapore which can provide training and testing for riders and drivers of all types of vehicles from motorcycles to heavy vehicles including crane trucks.

Since its establishment in 1983 as the very first safety driving centre in Singapore, SSDC has trained more than 250,000 riders and drivers. In addition, SSDC has been working together with the Bukit Batok Driving Centre Ltd. (BBDC), a Honda affiliate company established in 1990, in Bukit Batok (in the mid-western Singapore), to conduct various road safety and safety driving activities that are deeply rooted in the local community. Honda is committed to continue expanding its contribution to the realization of a safe mobility society in Singapore.

"Honda hopes this center will establish a new benchmark by making an even greater contribution to the ideal of safer mobility, because safety is not only Honda's dream - but the fervent hope of everyone in Singapore and even throughout Asia," said Fumihiko Ike, Chief Operating Officer for Honda Regional Operations (Asia & Oceania) at the ceremony.

Since 1964, to fulfill its social responsibility as a company which provides mobility including motorcycles and automobiles, Honda has been providing educational opportunities for motorcycle riders and automobile drivers to learn the proper handling and operation of vehicles and to promote public understanding of mobility and expansion of safe driving. Honda will continue its efforts to become a company that society wants to exist and conduct activities to promote road safety and responsible driving which will be accepted and trusted by society.
