Driving refresher roadshow for older drivers

A free refresher driving roadshow for people aged 60 and over in South Gloucestershire is being held at Longwell Green Community Centre from 1.30pm to 4pm on Thursday 9th March.

The roadshow aims to address modern changes to vehicles, and also how your own driving skills and habits may have changed, with advice on how you can go about updating those skills. The event will be relaxed and friendly with useful information to help improve people’s knowledge and confidence, as well as offering valuable health advice.

There will be a number of information stands on offer, a driving simulator to test reaction times, and free eye tests, along with a presentation covering subjects such as driving licences, changes in the highway code, safer driving at night, and effects of medication. Representatives from public health, the fire service and the local neighbourhood policing team will be present, and anyone who attends will also receive a free copy of the latest edition of The Highway Code.
