Your Norfolk winter 2019

Drive safer for longer

Norfolk County Council’s road safety team offers guidance for older drivers (GOLD) to help address specific driving issues - whether it’s lack of confidence in your driving, a medical condition or you just want some reassurance that you are still driving well. The sessions take place in your own car and are tailored to individual needs and concerns.

Jill Blackburn, aged 83 from Coltishall, enjoys driving and was keen to be able to continue living as independently as possible:Jill Blackburn

“My children had been a little worried about my driving and suggested I go through the assessment. I didn’t feel nervous at all and the instructor gave me some excellent advice. I would really recommend anyone concerned about their driving ability to take part in the assessment. It really isn’t difficult, and it certainly helped me to be a little more confident when driving.”
