A charity is bringing a new event aimed at keeping drivers over the age of 65 on the road for longer to Kinross next week.
The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) says drivers who choose to attend the event, entitled ‘Destination Drive’, will be offered free driving assessments to see if their motoring skills are still up to scratch.
Sandy Allan, RoSPA’s road safety manager in Scotland, said:“Often we don’t notice any difference in our driving from year to year, and medical conditions can mean that as we get older our driving can be affected, so seeking reassurance and advice is well worthwhile.
“Much has changed since a lot of us sat our driving test, and it’s often good to know where you stand now.
“Destination Drive will help with this, and also provide pathways for any coaching necessary or highlight alternatives to remain active.”
The event is being held at Loch Leven’s Larder next Tuesday (November 13) between 11am and 3pm. For advice on keeping safe on the road in the meantime go to www. olderdrivers.org.uk
