All welcome - bring a friend 
Presented by an RACQ educator, this is a  45 minute discussion-based presentation covering a range of age-related road safety issues.

Issues discussed will include crash statistics and how older drivers are represented, 
defensive driving tips, 
application of road rules,
and the important issues of physical fitness and medical requirements to drive.

This is a very useful and informative presentation for older drivers  - well worth attending. 
For more information, see the RACQ website...

The aim of the Years Ahead program is to assist older motorists to drive safely for longer by being aware of their own capabilities. It covers topics such as:

  • Recent changes to the Queensland road rules (including roundabouts and merging)
  • Medical Considerations when driving
  • Alternative Transport Options (such as Motorised Wheelchairs)

Morning tea will be available from 9.00am
