Free 'Drive Safely for Longer' course for over-65s

Places are available on a popular course which helps older people to keep driving safely for longer.

The course has been developed by Lancashire County Council to boost confidence and improve safety for people aged 65 and over.

In Lancashire, there has been a considerable reduction in road user casualties among people aged under 65 over the past five years, but this has not been matched by a corresponding reduction in older casualties.

There are still spaces left on the free Drive Safely for Longer course which will be allocated on a first come-first served basis. The course has received great feedback from the more than 600 people who have completed it over the past two years.
For more information contact Lancashire County Council's Road Safety Team on 01772 456412 or email olderdrivers@lancashire.gov.uk.
