Mature drivers in our area are being given the opportunity to brush up on their road knowledge thanks to informal workshops organised by the county council.

Powys County Council’s Road Safety Unit will be holding its Driver Theory Refresher workshop on May 9 in Welshpool.

Aimed at drivers in the county aged 65 years and over, the two-hour and classroom-based informal workshop will provide attendees a refresh of the Highway Code and driver licence requirements. It will also cover topics including night-time driving, medicine and alcohol laws and personal safety behind the wheel.

Attendees will also be offered a practical one-hour driving assessment.

Nigel Brinn, the council’s Head of Highways, Transport and Recycling, said: “We hope that this free workshop 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 statistically vulnerable driving group.”
