Workshops for mature drivers

 
Created on 06/01/2022 @ 11:06

 

Drivers aged 65 and over are being invited to refresh their road knowledge through a free, online driver theory course, organised by the county council.

Powys County Council’s Road Safety Unit will be holding its Driver Theory Refresher workshops on January 19, February 16 and March 16. 

The course is a two-hour, online informal workshop designed to update knowledge of the road in an ever-changing environment.

The course includes ‘The Fatal Five’; what to do when encountering vulnerable road users such as motor and pedal cyclists, and equestrians, eyesight requirements, medication and alcohol laws, what to do in the event of an accident, and much more.

Attendees will also be given information and contact details about going on one of the free, one hour ‘Drive-On’ assessments with a local ADI (Advanced Driving Instructor).

Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “Ensuring that our roads are safe is hugely important for our county. I would urge mature drivers across Powys to take advantage of this fantastic scheme. These free workshops are so important because they will refresh and update essential driving skills and could ultimately help save lives.”

For more information and to book a place, contact Miranda Capecchi, Road Safety Project Officer, on 01597 82 6924 or miranda.capecchi1@powys.gov.uk.
