BEHIND THE WHEEL TRAINING SESSION | $75

This is a Refresher Drive that is structured around adult LICENSED drivers with 1-hour of private behind the wheel time.

Older citizens are experienced and generally conscientious drivers. However, it's also a fact that as we age, our reaction times slow, our senses of vision and hearing can deteriorate and we have less flexibility and a more limited range of motion. In addition, many seniors are required to take medication that can adversely affect driving skills.

This appointment is an objective one on one session with the goal of upgrading and assessing driver skills with the latest "Defensive Driving" techniques.

The driver will be accompanied by a Professional Trainer with over 35 years of experience with issues of aging, anxiety, medical issues and special circumstances.
