Road safety events for the senior driver
'Route 60+' is a presentation aimed at senior drivers, with the aim of addressing not only how vehicles have changed over the years, but also how our own driving skills and habits may have changed and how we can go about updating those skills.
Driving provides independence and is a skill that should be nurtured for as long as possible. If a driver stops driving for a period of time it is, inevitably, much more difficult to try and start again at a later date and this workshop is designed to help you keep your licence for as long as safely possible. The presentation itself lasts approximately 60 minutes and is designed primarily to help drivers continue their driving career for as long as possible. There are opportunities to talk to members of the road safety team about any driving or road safety concerns you may have. Refreshments are always available and the atmosphere is very relaxed. You don't even have to be over 60 to come along!
If you wish to attend a Route 60+ event, there is no need to book in advance, simply turn up on the day. The presentation will usually run 90 minutes before the event finishes so if you wish to view it, please turn up in plenty of time.
Those attending will receive a free bag including a hi-vis jacket and a copy of the highway code and details of accreditted driving instructors will be available should any attendees require further support with their individual driving issues.
