Do you find driving stressful at times?
Cardiff Council’s Road Safety Unit, in conjunction with the Cardiff Group of the Institute of Advanced Motorists (CGIAM), is organising a number of Mature Driver Refresher seminars to be held at the Road Safety Centre, Maindy. The seminar is designed to enable mature drivers to improve their existing practical skills and to help them cope with the growing demands of modern traffic conditions.
Are you concerned about following driving-related problems? Poor concentration, misjudging speed and distance, difficulties in seeing road signs, changes in road surfaces, difficulties in carrying out manoeuvres such as parking, problems with vision, difficulties coping with the effects of bright sunlight, headlight dazzle and night driving. Then the Mature Driver Refresher seminar could help you to improve your driving skills and update your road safety knowledge.
About the seminar
Eighteen places are available on each course and will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. A £10 non-refundable fee, which must be forwarded to the Road Safety Centre upon booking, is required in order to secure your place. Failure to submit a fee will result in your place being offered to another person.
Topics will include: the effects of speed, stopping distances, dealing with junctions and roundabouts, driver observation, accident causation, health and a fun Highway Code quiz.
All delegates will be offered FREE associate membership of the CGIAM and a resource pack. On the second Sunday following the course there will also be an opportunity to undertake a no obligation ‘observed run’ in your own car with a trained observer who will assess your driving skill and offer constructive advice.
