Basra Driving Institute

With Iraq being ranked as the 4th country in terms of death due to road accidents, defensive driving training is becoming a national priority, and it adds up to the need of most of international oil companies operating in the country, as such training is required to all the drivers that enter into the concession.

For that, Basra Driving Institute has been, over the last 3 years, training more than 4,000 drivers across the country to ensure they are equipped with the right skills.

Working closely with Shell Iraq as part of local content development program, GroFin is assisting Basra Driving Institute with the seed capital and business support required to establish a sustainable business that will ensure the service will be delivered uninterrupted to international oil companies like Shell. Once the venture has kicked off, the service will be offered to other IOCs and NOCs.
