Free Mature Drivers Roadshow – 7th May 2024 – Rushden

An opportunity for drivers aged 60+ to get free help and guidance supported by the police and Northamptonshire Safer Roads Alliance.


Are you a mature driver (aged 60+)?  Live in Northamptonshire?  Rely on being able to drive? 

This FREE roadshow is for you! Driving is an important part of our everyday life and we (Northamptonshire Safer Roads Alliance (NSRA)) are keen to help to keep mature drivers driving safer for longer. 

Our driving ability to drive changes over time for different reasons, especially as we get older. It’s important that we recognise whether and how our driving is changing so we can stay safe and protect both ourselves and those around us. 

This Mature Drivers Roadshow is aimed at drivers 60+, and will cover all different aspects of driving. There will be a short talk and then plenty of time to meet informally with our many stand holders.

Free advice will be available on car adaptions, eyesight, how your prescription medications may affect you, and much more. There will be FREE hints and tips drives available to book, delivered Northampton Advanced Motorists. Our aim is to keep mature drivers driving safer, for longer.

Book your Free tickets via Universe https://www.universe.com/mature-drivers-rushden-2024

The event is being held at The Goods Shed, 227 John Clark Way, Rushden NN10 0AW  (what3words.com/minority.mows.interrupt) with two sessions, 9.30am and 1.00pm.
