The Municipality of Verona unfortunately had no funds available. Our Association for Motorcycling Coordination Committee was at the beginning and without money. Therefore, I as president invested 576 euros of my own salary, plus another 100 euros for booklets 'The family in motion'. Everything was given as a present.

Giannoukas Driving School was established having as primary concern both to raise awareness of active drivers and generally of all the road users and to initiate new drivers on safer driving habits. The differentiation of our School from other similar ones, lies in the fact that it is addressed to those who are “circulating” on the road network, that is to say all of us. Therefore, having as a springboard the ever-increasing percentage of people who leave their last breath on the road, I have attempted to demonstrate the importance not only of the training of prospective drivers, which is truly important, but also the urgent need for lifelong learning of all the road users.
