EVO Driver Training Ltd joins Parlex Company Benefit Scheme

EVO Driver Training Ltd are now part of the recently revived Parlex Company Benefit Scheme

A couple of months ago we received an email from Parlex Europe Ltd, who are a company that have been on the Isle of Wight for over 30 years (see below for more information about Parlex)

 Parlex Europe Ltd explained that they were going to reinstate a ‘Local Company Benefit Scheme’ that was once very popular with employees and asked if we would like to be a part of it. Today we are happy to announce that the scheme is up and running and Parlex employees have all been issued with a Company ID to receive a discount on their driving lessons with EVO Driver Training.

 If your company has a benefit scheme why not get in touch with us, we'd love to be a part of it. If your company doesn't have a benefit scheme, why not suggest it, you could be on for a promotion!!

 Call us on 01983 822 200 to see what we can do for you
