A third ‘Drive Safely for Longer’ seminar will be held at Frodsham Golf Club at 10am on Friday 30 August.
Cheshire West and Chester Council’s Road Safety Team have once again joined forces with Frodsham Town Council to offer a ‘Drive Safely for Longer’ seminar taking place in Frodsham on Friday 30 August 2019 at 10am.
Cheshire West and Chester Road Safety Team will also be promoting the ‘Safely for Longer’ driving assessments which drivers age 60 + who live in the borough can access free of charge following the workshop whilst funding is available. These are two-hour sessions out on the road with an Approved Driving Instructor, helping them brush up on their skills and learn some techniques for safer driving.
Experienced drivers are, in general, safer than those with less experience. But as we get older, our health and fitness, often including our eyesight, physical condition and reaction times, can begin to decline. Many drivers recognise that their driving ability is changing, but they remain reliant on their vehicles to keep them active this programme will help them to continue to drive, safely, for as long as possible, by offering these assessments and advice sessions. The scheme is designed to help mature drivers brush up on their observation skills, learn how to cope with the mistakes of other road users, and address any concerns they may have.
The instructor will discuss the driver’s requirements before setting off on a drive, in the driver’s own vehicle. Along the way the instructor will give the driver advice and tips to enhance their driving skills. Though the course lasts two hours, it is not all spent driving and there is no pass or fail at the end of it!
The Drive Safely for Longer seminar will be held at Frodsham Golf Club, Simons Lane, Frodsham, WA6 6HE at 10am on Friday 30 August 2019. There will be a range of speakers, including an expert in Driver training, an officer from Cheshire police, a member of the Road Safety team and there will be lots more information and advice provided. A light lunch will also be provided.
Places are limited, so booking is essential.
