The new curriculum contains the latest research & industry insights and exciting new topics. The revised workbook contents are participant friendly and easy to follow. The associated program video has been re-formatted and includes interviews with experts and supportive data. The course is design to help participants:

• Learn research-based strategies that can reduce the likelihood of having a crash.
• Understand the links among the driver, vehicle, and road environment, and how this awareness encourages safer behavior.
• Learn how aging, medications, alcohol, and other health-related issues affect driving ability, and ways to adjust to allow for these changes.
• Increase confidence.
• Know how to drive safely when sharing the road with other road users.
• Learn the newest safety and advance features in vehicles.
• Learn when driving may no longer be safe.
• Explore other ways to travel.

Ballirano, Deputy State Coordinator will be conducting this program, which is open to all.
