Chief Operating Officer of Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd., Pitak Pruittisarikorn said, “Honda has introduced a wide range of automobile products to serve all the lifestyles of our customers in Thailand including environmentally-friendly alternative energy cars. They have always received a warm welcome from Thai customers.  Our customers also trust in the service standards of our 200 showrooms and service centres nationwide, whose staff always deliver the best service to all of Honda’s customers. The Honda Skill Contest is one of our activities to enhance and develop staff’s potential in customer service and maintain operating standards with an aim to deliver the highest levels of satisfaction to all of our customers.”

In this year’s contest, Honda arranged a “Safety Driving Instructor” contest, because Honda sees the importance of road safety for Thai society.  Honda is now encouraging its dealers to provide additional safe driving and traffic discipline training to customers.

Recently, a Safety Driving Instructor from Honda Automobile (Thailand) Co., Ltd. won the “15th Safety Japan Instructors Competition”, which is hosted by Honda Motor Co., Ltd. in Japan.
