Keep Driving

Older drivers

Driving is very important for many of us. It gives us the freedom and independence to get out and about, keep in contact with family and friends and maintain our quality of life.

One of the best ways of making sure we are able to keep driving for as long as possible is keep our driving skills and knowledge up to date.

For example, make sure that you are familiar with the latest edition of The Highway Code, which is free online or can be bought from most bookshops - it's probably changed since you last read it.
