2. Enhanced Road Assessment—Keys to Acing that Driving Test

At age 80, BC Drivers are required to have their doctor complete a Driver's Medical Examination, and depending on the result, Road Safety BC may require the driver to take an Enhanced Road Assessment a.k.a a driving test.  In the presentation below, Joanne Bergman, a road safety coordinator with ICBC, provides an overview of what driving is like on our roads today, the Enhanced Road Assessment, tips for mature drivers and refresher of rules of the road and staying mobile.

ICBC’s road safety team works closely with local police, municipalities, stakeholders and volunteers to help make community roads safer for everyone. They develop programs that address driver behaviours, improve road design and promote vehicle safety and security.

How about you?  Are you thinking it is time to make some changes, but you don’t know where to start?
