Enhancing Road safety for Golden Plains' Senior Drivers

Wiser Driver
Active Ageing & Inclusion

Golden Plains Shire Council is thrilled to partner with VicRoads and Hawthorn Community House to deliver the second round of the Wiser Driver Program that will run as part of Seniors Festival activities throughout October.

Wiser Diver is an informative, informal and friendly refresher course to upgrade knowledge and build on experience to help older drivers drive safely.

Topics covered throughout the sessions include driving today, safety tips for wiser driving, safety rules, car safety features, being roadworthy and planning for the future.

Wiser Driver sessions will run each Wednesday in October from 10am to 12pm, with four sessions to be held from Wednesday 4 October until Wednesday 25 October at the Bannockburn Family Services Centre, 2A Pope Street, Bannockburn.

Golden Plains Shire Mayor Cr Brett Cunningham encouraged seniors in Golden Plains to seize this opportunity and participate in the second round of the program.

“Wiser Driver is for any seniors in Golden Plains who feel like they need a refresher course to feel safer and more confident when driving,” Cr Cunningham said.

“I encourage seniors from all across the Shire to participate in Wiser Driver and experience an exciting and informative program that promotes safe and responsible driving.”

Participants in the program will also receive a range of resources from VicRoads to assist with the course.

To register for the sessions, contact Council’s Active Ageing and Inclusion Team on [email protected] or call 5220 7151.

All sessions must be attended in order to complete the program. For more information, visit www.goldenplains.vic.gov.au/events
