    Course overview

    Mature drivers are among the safest on the road, but there is no denying that as you get older reactions can be less swift, perhaps the eyesight might not be so sharp and memories of the Highway Code less clear. Our Mature Driver Review is the perfect way to gain reassurance that even though you may be a senior road user, you still have plenty of miles left in the tank.

    One of our qualified experts will go out with you, in your own car on familiar roads that are local to you, to assess your driving style and to watch out for any areas where your skills could do with some sharpening. It might be that you are aware that your driving is not what it used to be, that you have worries about particular situations you have encountered in the cut-and-thrust of today’s traffic, or simply that you – or your family – would benefit from the reassurance of knowing that you’re still OK to be behind the wheel of a car.

    The review is informal – you can even bring a friend to ride along if you like – and is aimed purely and simply at helping you to be a better driver. Ninety per cent of older drivers reviewed by IAM RoadSmart need only some minor guidance to set them back on the right road.

    After the review, drivers not only get a verbal report on their skills but also a written account of the session, which includes pointers to improvement. It’s a completely personal report, shared with no one else. Those who have completed one of our Mature Driver Reviews tell us that having an expert to judge their driving skills gives them renewed confidence at the wheel and a real sense of achievement.
