Mature Drivers

Mature drivers are statistically less likely to be involved in a road crash than younger or less experienced drivers. Research shows that mature drivers tend to make fewer and shorter journeys than other age groups and travel on familiar roads, mainly during daylight hours.

However, the inevitable effect of the ageing process can affect your sight, hearing and judgement and you may not be aware of these gradual changes. If you would like to update your driving skills ring the Road Safety Centre, Tel: 029 2078 8521. for a free leaflet, Advice for Older Drivers.

We also provide a Mature Driver Refresher course.
