FirstStep recently got to test drive the all new Toyota Prius and for five days the car produced more than just a luxury performance! We at FirstStep know that today’s youth is the future driving force of South Africa, so we believe in getting you budding yuppies informed with what’s happening with the latest car technology. Hey…you going to be driving them in the not so distant future anyway!
 
The Prius is extremely spacious, good looking, and environmentally friendly. It produced an awesome drive as well, which I suppose is the main thing after all. The major feature of the Prius was its electric motor, which provided an extremely quiet drive and some major fuel efficiency. Switching between its electric and petrol engines provided an experience that has forever changed my view on the future of the motor car! One can only hope that it will revolutionise the way in which cars are manufactured the world over.

The Government established in 1998 The South African Council of Higher Education (CHE) which has a sub Committee called the Higher Education Quality Committee (HEQC). Between these two bodies they hold the responsibility of accreditation and quality of education in South Africa.
