Free training for elderly Dorset drivers
12:00pm Thursday 5th September 2013 in News
Dorset drivers aged 75 and over are being offered the chance to sharpen their driving skills free of charge.
The new Dorset Road Safe Partnership pilot scheme called ‘Dorset Driver Gold’ is starting this month.
It will update drivers’ knowledge and improve their expertise and confidence on the road.
The scheme has two parts.
The first is a theory course and the second is a practical driving observation.
Emma Selway, of the county council’s Road Safety Team, said: “This is not a test of your skills but an opportunity for you to benefit from free driver training and for us to learn how successful the course is in achieving its aims.”
