Free motoring workshops are being offered to older drives in the area by Powys County Council.

The two hour, informal courses have been developed and are delivered by the council’s Road Safety Unit, thanks to funding from the Welsh Government.
The workshops focus on issues such as driving licence requirements, personal safety while driving, winter driving, the dangers of drink driving and not wearing seatbelts.  The workshops take place are from 1.30-3.30pm on the following dates:
•    Welshpool: Thursday 26 FebruaryTuesday 21 AprilTuesday 23 June
•    Llanfyllin: Tuesday 24 FebruaryWednesday 22 AprilThursday 25 June

•    Llanidloes: Thursday 19 FebruaryFriday 10 AprilWednesday 29 July
•    Newtown: Monday 2 MarchThursday 14 May
Workshop attendees will also be offered the chance to take part in a free one hour practical drive with an approved driving instructor at a later date.  

The confidential and practical assessment helps those taking part to develop their skills and identify any areas of weakness, or lack of confidence that may have developed over the years.
Cllr Wynne Jones, Cabinet Member responsible for Road Safety, said: “We hope that these free courses will help preserve and conserve valuable driving skills and make drivers more aware of what influences our driving, ultimately leading to a reduction in collisions and casualties in this vulnerable driving group.”
The workshop and practical drive are both completely free to Powys residents.
