Mature drivers in Montgomeryshire are being invited to brush up on their motoring skills.

Two driver theory refresher courses are to be held in Newtown and Welshpool, run by Powys County Council’s road safety unit.

Aimed at drivers in the county aged 65 years and over, the two-hour and classroom-based informal workshop will provide attendees a refresh of the Highway Code and driver licence requirements.  It will also cover topics including night-time driving, medicine and alcohol laws and personal safety behind the wheel.
 
Attendees will also be provided with details of a practical one-hour driving assessment if wanted.

Cllr Liam Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “Ensuring that our roads are safe is hugely important for our county. I would urge mature drivers across Powys to take advantage of this fantastic scheme. These free workshops are so important because they will refresh and update essential driving skills and could ultimately help save lives.”

The courses will be held at Newtown on 12 March and Welshpool on 16 March.

For further information or to book your place on this course email road.safety@powys.gov.uk or call Bridget Farrington, Area Road Safety Officer.
