Be a Better Driver
Mature Driver Assessment
Everybody’s driving changes over time in different ways and for many different reasons. Buckinghamshire County Council offer driving assessments for mature drivers that aim to: restore confidence, help drivers to deal with new road layouts and systems or just offer reassurance, perhaps following a period of not driving or illness.
The assessment lasts approximately one hour and will be in your own vehicle on roads familiar to you and costs £37. The assessor will meet you at your home (for Buckinghamshire residents). You will be given feedback during the assessment and a written report will be sent to you by post.
You can also book via a paper application.
We have a number of resources to support older people:
- Bucks Journey Planning
- Are you worried about an Older/Mature driver?
- Bucks Making the Vehicle Fit
- Bucks Night Driving
- Bucks Observation
- Bucks Retire from Driving
- Bucks Sight
Driving for Work Assessment
Driving is the most dangerous work activity that most people do. A Driving for work assessment can help to provide support and guidance to help drivers understand the associated risks and how to deal with the demands of driving in a work environment. Diver assessments can also help companies to meet their duty of care obligations under HSE legislation.
Young Driver Assessment
Taking a Young Driver Assessment can help with gaining more experience and support for situations such as: motorways, dual carriageways, towns or country routes and can help restore confidence for those that haven’t driven for a while.
Eco Driving Assessment
An ecodriving assessment looks at fuel efficient driving and how changing your driving technique can help you save fuel by at least 10%, making a positive difference to the environment and saving you money.
