Hampshire County Council’s road safety team operates the Driver Skills Scheme 60+ to help Hampshire residents who are 60 and over to stay safe on the road for as long as possible.
The team advise both drivers and family members who may have concerns about safety, as well as helping those who have no current driving concerns but wish to ensure they continue to drive safely.
The scheme is represented in the Hampshire and the Isle of Wight Older Drivers Forum.
In December 2015 the Driver Skills Scheme 60+ was included in an edition of BBCs ‘The One Show’ when John Sergeant and Jenny Bond had their driving assessed.
As part of a successful series of workshops across Hampshire, The Road Safety Team are holding a free driver awareness workshop on Friday 27 May 2016 in the Mitchell Room, Elizabeth II Court, Winchester, SO23 8UJ from 10.00 until 12.30.
A break for refreshments will be provided to enable people to talk to members of the team.
This workshop is aimed at people of 60 and over and covers the following:
- Highway Code update
- How driving changes as age increases
- Rules and regulations about driver licensing and eyesight
- Ways of maintaining independence by keeping driving for as long as is safe
To reserve a place at the Workshop please phone the Road Safety Team on 01962 846100 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
