I am a senior citizen but also and first of all I am a former driver examiner who conducted thousands of road tests during 15 years of doing the job. I tested many senior drivers who due to different reasons had to be retested. Unfortunately the most of them were not successful. Some of them were even so unsafe on the road that their tests were terminated due to safety reasons and lack of skills. Some of them, even they did not commit any traffic violations or dangerous actions during the test, to their surprise learned after the test that they did not meet the standards, basically they just failed. If they just demonstrated at the time proper observation skills, the outcome of the road test would end on a positive note. I always made suggestions after the tests how to improve their driving to become a safe driver. On many occasions when I took them on the road test again, their driving was enough for me to say : my congratulations, you passed!
Based on my unique experience and knowledge I gained working for so long as a driver examiner, I created an educational video that can be used to educate everyone how to become a safe oriented driver for either everyday's driving or passing the required road test in order to keep or get back a driver's licence.
it is available 24/7 and it is divided up to 10 lessons. Each lesson covers a part of the driving such as: turns, lane changes,driving in business and residential areas, stop intersections, through intersections, driving on expressways, curves, road site stop, three point turn,and parallel park.
I can guarantee that everyone will be a much safer driver than now after watching the educational video. It will help seniors to maintain their driving freedom for a long time. I encourage senior drivers to proactively drive as safely as possible, and this video refresher is a great idea!
