Calling all mature drivers 

30/06/09

Drivers aged 50 plus will once again have a chance to attend a free Mature Drivers Seminar on Tuesday June 23.

The event, following a series of successful seminars, will take place at the Bolton Arena from 10am to 12noon. The seminar will include a presentation about safer driving and a copy of the Highway Code will be given out to each delegate on the day.

The seminars are arranged by Bolton Council in partnership with Bolton Advanced Motorists. Places are limited and can be booked by calling Bolton Council’s Road Safety Team on 01204 336465.

Successful places will be confirmed in writing and will inform delegates of the seminar programme and directions to the Bolton Arena.

Additional seminars will take place in September and November.

Bolton Advanced Motorists also offer a free follow-up driving assessment at a bronze, silver or gold level. There will be no driving on the day but places for this assessment can be booked at the seminar. Assessments are carried out in the drivers’ own vehicle.

Councillor Ismail Ibrahim, Executive Member for Environmental Services, said:

“This event is about providing experienced drivers with the chance to refresh their knowledge on changes to the rules of the road and gain the latest safer driving advice.

“No matter how long you have been driving there is always something new to learn so I would urge drivers to sign up to this event today.”

Refreshments will be provided at the event.
