Road Safety

Mature Driver

The Road Safety Team are pleased to be bringing you the 'Mature Driver Course' for people aged 65+. We want to keep you mobile and independent, and keep you confident behind the wheel.

Why not take advantage of this informal and relaxed course, where you will benefit from spending a morning in a classroom setting with an experienced driver trainer. We will then arrange for you to go out for a drive, with an approved driving instructor, in the days that follow.

Previous participants have valued the opportunity to attend the theory and practical sessions… but don't just take our word for it, here’s what some had to say:

'I have re-learnt a lot of what I should have known but over the years have forgotten'

'This really helped my confidence; everyone should do this course - thank you all'

'I can now do Morrison’s roundabout with confidence'

What is the course all about?

  • Helping to keep you driving safer for longer
  • The ageing process and driving safely 
  • Addressing your personal concerns about your driving now and for the future
  • Identifying bad driving habits. You might have picked some up over the years!
  • Updates to the Highway Code

This course is not:

  • A test of your driving skills
  • A formal assessment of your driving

How much does the course cost?

Thanks to Road Safety grant funding from Welsh Government the course is free of charge to residents of Pembrokeshire.

Courses will be delivered at Haverfordwest Fire Station during the morning and will be followed by practical drives within two weeks.
