The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), wants to help mature drivers by providing advice and support, in order to keep them safely driving for as long as possible. This is particularly important because research shows that stopping driving can have a detrimental effect on an individual’s wellbeing. Even as a mature driver a few hints and tips can make a big difference.
Destination Drive is a free confidential 30-minute driving assessment with one of RoSPA’s assessors which can be pre-booked or organised on the day subject to availability – pre-booking is recommended. The aim of this assessment, carried out in the driver’s own vehicle in a relaxed and informal manner, is to provide friendly and honest feedback as well as reassurance and practical advice. The assessment is completely informal and not a test. Drivers who’ve had an assessment said:
"Because of this event, I will change how I drive.”
“Having not had a driving assessment since the early 60’s, it was comforting to know that I am not a liability on the road.”
“Support was wonderful and very informative.”
Destination Drive will give mature drivers the opportunity to come along and receive free information and advice about their driving, including safety tips. There will also be an opportunity for the driver to test their knowledge and driving skills using one of the latest Highway Code quizzes.
We do not have any further Destination Drive days planned at the moment. Please check back soon for the announcement of further dates.
