Drivers Skills 60+ Virtual Open Day FREE Webinar (For Hampshire residents only)

HCC webinarWe’re inviting older motorists to join our Road Safety colleagues on the Driver Skills Scheme 60+ Virtual Open Day FREE webinar on Wednesday 19th May

We have two webinars this day:

  • 10.30am to 12 noon… Now Fully booked
  • 2.30pm to 4pm………..Places available, to register click here

This will be your chance to find out more about the scheme and to decide whether a driving appraisal will suit you. While we know that older drivers are generally safe as a group, we can all become complacent about our driving and pick up bad habits which, if not addressed, can increase the risk of an incident on the roads.

This webinar offers a detailed look at what is involved in one of our driving appraisals and how it has helped many drivers over the past few years. It will explain when an assessment could be advisable and how to arrange one. There will also be an opportunity to put questions to the experts, including the Chairman of the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Older Drivers Forum.

Previous Webinars held in March 2021

In March we ran two webinars. Below is all about them:

Thursday 18th March 2021 – Driver Awareness 60+ – Recording of the webinar is below.

Graham Mylward , Senior Road Safety Officer for Hampshire County Council who will be talking about safe driving tips and advice on things like roundabouts
Rebecca Ashton, Head of Policy and Research for IAM RoadSmart talking about a project they need help on for the Department for Transport

Thursday 25th March 2021 – Advice and support to Mature Drivers – Recording of this webinar below
The webinar has 4 speakers as detailed below:
Pc Liz Johnson, Hampshire and Thames Valley Police Road Safety Officer talking about the Older Drivers Forum and risks and issues faced by older drivers
June Howlett, Road Safety Officer for Buckinghamshire Council who will speak about driving appraisals and eyesight as well as explaining about their Older Drivers advice guide

Neil Greig, Director of Policy and Research for IAM RoadSmart talking about a project they need help on for the Department for Transport

IAM Road Smart request for help with a project by Neil Greig, Head of Policy and Research

“Our project is funded by the Department of Transport and is designed to investigate the opinions of older drivers and ex-drivers on their relationship with their cars and when and why they plan to give up driving.  The aim is to provide an insight into the type of projects, campaigns and policies that would be most effective among older road users, in particular those over the age of 70.  We are working with Dr Carol Hawley of the University of Warwick who has already surveyed the opinions and experiences of over 3000 older drivers and the next phase is to test some of the findings on a smaller group of older people in a workshop setting.  Due to co-vid this phase has been delayed as we were hoping to have face to face meetings but will probably now have to use Zoom.  The workshops will take place in the next few months and would last an hour or so.  Your input could have a real influence on future government policy so if you would be interested in taking part please e-mail us at info@iam.org.uk
