Free Driving Safer For Longer Workshops

Devon County Council and Red One together we are committed to helping people to retain their independent mobility whilst remaining safe on the road and are currently offering FREE Driving Safer for Longer workshops.

For many older people in Devon, a driving licence is an important symbol of independence. Cars make it easier to go shopping, get to appointments, keep in touch with friends and attend social events - without having to rely on others.

Whilst some older drivers may be able to continue driving well into their 80s and 90s it’s important for them to regularly assess their driving and make adjustments if necessary. Driving techniques have and do change over the years. Each year approximately 1000 collisions in Devon involve drivers over the age of 65, however; it is important to stress that older age should not be linked with bad driving, although it may impair driving ability.

Our FREE workshop is informal, interactive, fun and very informative. We offer various modules according to the requirements of the group, topics covered can include:

  • Health
  • Eyesight
  • Highway Code
  • Medical conditions
  • Advice on aids to driving
  • The challenges facing drivers today
  • Interesting to Know

    We will also provide the workshop organiser with a FREE driving assessment.

    This one hour assessed drive with one of our approved friendly local driving instructors will give advice about driving performance and a written report at the end of the assessment.

    Many people use the assessment to give them peace of mind that they are still a competent driver, others use it to brush up on their driving skills.

    Driving assessments start from the delegates home and in their own car, they will be asked to drive the roads and routes they usually use.
