Help for Older Drivers

1 January 0001

RoSPA has launched a new website to help older people adapt to changes in their driving, and help them stay safe on the road.

The website gives tips on how people can update their driving skills and knowledge to maintain their freedom and independence on the road, as well as advice for families or friends who are concerned about a loved one’s driving. It is intended to help drivers recognise whether and how their driving is changing, and find out what they can do to cope with these changes - including reviewing when and where they drive, adapting their car or taking driver assessment or training.

It has been set up by the safety charity, with funding from the DfT, with the intention of helping older drivers to drive safely for longer.
