Dorset County Council – Dorset Driver Gold

Highly Commended, 2015

 Dorset County Council’s road safety team has been delivering older driver programmes for over 20 years. Using “Evalu-It” it has developed a much improved, evidence-led coaching programme specifically targeting motorists, aged 75+.

The unique new programme, “Dorset Driver Gold”, aims to address the effects of declining cognitive and physical driving ability, which evidence suggests may contribute towards loss of confidence and increased driver error amongst the most senior group of drivers.

Dorset Driver Gold is unique in that it focuses exclusively on supporting the very oldest group of drivers (75+) with a year-long programme, comprising theory and at least two follow up practical coaching sessions delivered by experienced professional driver trainers
