A one-day refresher course for elderly drivers. Over the coming years, the elderly will make up an increasing percentage of our road users. The major difficulties affecting older drivers are declining visual performance and the slowing down of reaction and response time. This course aims to improve the competence of these drivers who are elderly or impaired who wish to continue to hold a driving licence and to use the roads in a safe manner.
