Safe driving workshop in Agassiz

Seniors offered chance to review driving habits and road knowledge

A driver’s license is more than a plastic card. The excitement of passing that test as a teenager and getting the keys to the car are often the first step to independence and freedom. For seniors the ability to drive makes it possible for them to carry on normal activities of shopping, attending appointments and traveling for recreation. Many capable drivers continue well past the age of 80, but in B.C., medical exams are required at regular intervals after that age and seniors may be required to be re-examined to retain their licenses.

At 2 p.m. on Monday, June 18, a Safe Driving Workshop is planned at Cheam Village Board Room, 1525 MacKay Crescent. John De Martin, driver examiner for ICBC will assist seniors to review their driving habits, brush up on their knowledge and make a plan of action to stay on the road.
