Refresher workshops for mature drivers

 
Created on 21/04/2022 @ 10:36


Drivers aged 65 and over are being given the opportunity to revise and improve their road knowledge by taking advantage of 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 the following days:

Wednesday, May 18

Wednesday, June 22

The course is a two-hour, online informal workshop designed to update knowledge of the road in an ever-changing environment, thus helping improve driving skills and keep those aged 65 and over driving safely.  

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).

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.
