Road Safety

Mature Driver Course

The Road Safety Unit are pleased to be bringing you the “Mature Driver Course” for people aged 65+. We want to keep you mobile and independent, and keep you confident behind the wheel.

Why not take advantage of this informal and relaxed day-long session, benefiting from the expertise of an experienced Driver Trainer and a fully qualified Approved Driving Instructor?

You do not need to bring your car to benefit from this session – we provide the wheels.

Previous participants have valued the opportunity to attend the theory and practical sessions… but don't just take our word for it, here’s what some had to say:

“I have re-learnt a lot of what I should have known but over the years but have forgotten”

“This really helped my confidence; everyone should do this course - thank you all”

“I can now do Morrison’s roundabout with confidence”.

 

What is the course all about?

  • Helping to keep you driving safer for longer
  • The ageing process and driving safely 
  • Addressing your personal concerns about your driving now and for the future
  • Identifying bad driving habits. You might have picked some up over the years!
  • Updates to the Highway Code

This course is not:

  • A test of your driving skills
  • A formal assessment of your driving

How much does the course cost?

Thanks to Road Safety Grant funding from Welsh Government the course is free of charge to residents of Pembrokeshire.
