Easy Access

8 Apr 2019 - Driving Roadshow at Neston Library

Published: 12th March 2019 09:52

Due to popular demand, there will be another ‘Drive Safer for Longer' workshop taking place on Monday 8 April - an informal get-together to discuss some of the issues which affect drivers over 60.

Drive Safely for Longer

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.

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 Safely for Longer workshop is being held at Neston Library, Parkgate Road, Neston, CH64 6QE between 11am and noon on Monday 8 April.

Places are limited, so booking is essential. To book, please call the library 0151 337 4670 as soon as possible or email roadsafety@cheshirewestandchester.gov.uk

I attended a previous course of "Safely for longer" last year, and can confidently recommend it. The instructors are really friendly and the course is most enjoyable. I am 85 and a member of the Wirral IAM (Inst. of Adv. Motorists) but found this short course was of great benefit to me. Do try it, I'm sure you will enjoy the experience and feel more confident afterwards.
