Driving Your Skills

Staffordshire Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) is committed to supporting older drivers through its Driving Your Skills programme.

This is a theory only two hour interactive workshop suitable for all drivers. It offers the opportunity to reassure drivers, refresh skills and increase confidence. The session is tailored to individual needs, covering topics such as recognising speed limits, driving in heavy traffic, negotiating junctions, dealing with complex road systems and the effect of medication and driving.

As drivers get older, some may become less confident on the road or have specific concerns about aspects of their driving. Driving Your Skills is packed with information. Even if we have been driving for a number of years, no doubt having to adapt our driving as our circumstances and health change, it would be easy to think about giving up driving, but there's no need to - you just need to figure out how to deal with it all.
