Senior drivers encouraged to ‘Drive On’
Senior drivers in Powys are being invited to take part in a free assessment designed to build their driving confidence.
‘Drive On’ is a free assessment being offered by Powys Council’s road safety unit for people aged 55 years and over, or for people requiring support to build confidence in their driving. The scheme is free thanks to funding from the Welsh Government.
Participants can choose a driving instructor from a list supplied and then book a one hour assessment drive, either in their car or the instructors. The assessment is confidential and any safety issues that arise are discussed with a view to improving them.
The assessment drive can be tailored to meet the needs of the participant and each participant is given a free copy of the Highway Code to keep.
