As we age, our health and fitness (often including our eyesight, physical and reaction times) begin to deteriorate as well as being at a higher risk of various illnesses. Age-related conditions can hugely affect our ability to drive at a safe standard.
Many older drivers recognise that their driving ability is changing and so they change when and where they drive - this is often called 'self-regulation', whilst some find it more difficult to adapt or accept that their driving standard is slipping.
There are several simple things we can do to help us all continue to drive safely for as long as possible, such as taking regular driving assessments from an Advanced Trainer.
DTS Driver Training is qualified to provide OAP-relevant assessments to the older generation and support them in further training if necessary and possible, including planning and anticipation skills. We also provide full DL25 and written reports to doctors or family members to help support our professional claim.
Get that assurance from us and stay safer, for longer. Our experiences include conducting OAP assessments and training for Suffolk County Council, and hold qualifications that specialise in OAP assessments and training
OAP assessments and training is usually carried out in your own vehicle.
In your own vehicle or taxi
