Course overview

Our Mature Driver Review is a relaxed, 1-hour session with an IAM RoadSmart expert. Together, you’ll drive in your own vehicle on roads familiar to you, and at the end of the session will receive guidance on how to continue driving safely for year’s to come.

Having your driving skills periodically reviewed is part of being a responsible motorist, and is a great way to ensure that you and your passengers are safe. Even if you are an excellent driver, our expert can make sure your skills are as sharp as they can be.

We know just how important driving is, and how it represents the freedom to go anywhere, anytime. This is why many mature drivers choose our course, because it gives them the confidence and skills to carry on driving and maintain their independence.


Who is the Mature Driver Review for?

Our course is for any mature driver who feels that now is the time to have their driving skills reviewed. We often find the course is ideal for:

Grandparents who want to ensure the safety of their family and loved ones when out on the road.

Nervous drivers who are looking for reassurance of their skills or maybe find driving more daunting than they used to.

Drivers 70 and over who are looking for a second opinion before renewing their driving licence with the DVLA.


What to expect

After purchasing your course, you’ll be paired with one of our local experts. You will agree a meeting time and place to suit you, and you can even bring a friend or family member along for support.

During your drive, the trainer will ask you to take a familiar route so that any advice given is tailored to your local area and driving style. If there’s anything specific you’d like help on, let you’re trainer know and they can add it to your review.

After your review, you’ll receive verbal and written feedback to takeaway. You can then use this feedback to continue refining your skills after the session.

Keeping your loved ones safe

Mature Driver Review - Grandchild carWhether you’re helping with the school run, or going for a weekend trip to the beach, keeping your family safe is understandably your number one priority.

Our Mature Driver Review is perfect for sharpening your skills and boosting your confidence, helping you to create a ‘safety bubble’ around yourself and your passengers. As roads become more congested, it’s more important than ever for every driver to ensure their skills are kept up to date. For example, reminders on proper cornering or hazard perception techniques can make you a safer driver, particularly in towns or on rural roads.

Over 70? Renew with confidence.

All UK driving licences expire when the holder reaches 70, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you have to stop driving. You just need to renew your driving licence with the DVLA if you want to continue, and will need to renew it every 3 years after that.

For many drivers, knowing whether or not to renew their licence is an easy decision. However, our Mature Driver Review can offer that extra level of confidence that you’re making the right choice. Some drivers even choose to have a review every three years to coincide with their licence renewal dates.
