Gloucestershire Presentation

Driving Safely for Longer
A presentation to support older drivers and their family and friends

The Gloucestershire Older Drivers Forum are running another presentation to support older drivers and their family and friends with useful advice. This presentation was given in November 2020 to great success. One attendee said:

This is one of the better webinars (on any subject) that I have attended – you and Nigel had clearly put considerable thought and effort into creating an interesting, informative, thought-provoking, and eye-catching presentation.

Another presentation is now  arranged for Saturday 19th December 2020 at 11am. The presentation is:

  • Free join
  • The presentation is 30 minutes in length, with 30 minutes for questions and answers
  • Places are limited so you will need to register, see below available dates
  • The presentations are to support older drivers and their family and friends
  • The event is online using Zoom. You do not need a Zoom account to take part.

To register your place click here or e-mail odfglos@gmail.com with your name and the e-mail address you would like the joining information sent to

Following another lockdown break from driving, it’s more important than ever that older people feel confident and competent behind the wheel before setting off.

Online questionnaires and thinking tests (e.g. memory, attention, language).

Where is the research happening?
The study is completed online, and so recruiting throughout the UK.

This week we ran the above three webinars to help and support mature motorists to carry on driving safely for longer. They were very successful with great feedback being received for all three.

Extremely useful and informative. This is definitely one of the better webinars I’ve attended over the past few months, both in presentation and content.
