Powys County Council's Road Safety Unit will be holding its Driver Theory Refresher workshop on the following days:

Aimed at drivers in the county aged 65 years and over, the two-hour classroom-based informal workshop will provide attendees a reminder of the Highway Code and driver licence requirements.  It will also cover topics including night-time driving, medicine and alcohol laws and personal safety behind the wheel.

Attendees will also be provided with details of a practical one-hour driving assessment if wanted.

Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: "Ensuring that our roads are safe is hugely important for our county. I would urge mature drivers across Powys to take advantage of this fantastic scheme. These free workshops are so important because they will refresh and update essential driving skills and could ultimately help save lives."
