Itâ€™s true; youâ€™ve been driving for years and in all likelihood you have never had a collision. But as part of the natural process of aging, individuals begin to see changes in their hearing, vision and reaction time. Because these changes occur over time, it can be difficult to recognize how they affect personal driving abilities. A driver training program can assist seniors in compensating for these impairments.
DriveWise senior programs are designed to minimize stress caused by driving. Participants have the option of training in a simulated environment, allowing driving errors to be corrected in a safe, comfortable and supportive atmosphere.
> Simulated learning: Participants can correct improper driving habits in the safety of a user-friendly simulated environment.
> Supportive learning environment: DriveWise instructors are industry experts. Not only are they adept at educating participants on safe driving practices, they do so in a supportive, respectful and participatory manner.
> Cost-effective: As Canadaâ€™s leading driver training centre, DriveWise is committed to delivering quality training at affordable prices. Depending on the program selected DriveWise offers payment plans. Call your local centre for more details.
