Senior Refresher

Maintaining driving independence for the older and wiser drivers:

Aging is inevitable, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up an active life. Driver safety is critical for everyone and there comes a time when an older driver experiences physical changes that can sometimes affect their driving abilities. These include changes in vision, reaction time, and flexibility.

We offer special instruction for our older and wiser drivers in our refresher course, including the following:
