Drivers Safety was in focus during two-day, eight hour program at St. Francis Church . There were a large number of senior citizens who signed up for the course.

Such course proves very helpful for participants as it makes them aware which is the need for the patience and tolerance on the road.

As one gets older the need for such courses increases as one face changes in the eyesight.our reaction times makes different techniques assure that they remain safe and defensive driver.

So by participating in such courses one gets his/her knowledge refreshed especially people who are into their old age which would make them defensive drivers.[/i]

By running this class you can teach people of your area rules of safe driving and as result of learning you take tuitions fees from them. But be honest with your business.

That is right Crish. Smile

Unfortunately, there are certain people who misuse their position as driving instructors and in order to make more money, deliberately prolong lessons with their students.

You see, there is no end to the number of lessons one can take to practice driving, so it's easy for an instructor to go on giving lessons and for students to go on paying for them!

As an older driver (I'm past 70), to reduce the cost of insurance I've taken the course for geriatric drivers a few times. Although the courses are a good idea, they are too watered down. It would be just as effective to read the material. However, responsible drivers would keep their knowledge up to date without taking those courses.

There should be brain exercises readily available to increase the ability of brains to respond quickly to changing situations and make proper decisions. That can be done with a computer, but the software either is not readily available or it is impossible for a consumer to evaluate its effectiveness.

Adequate eye tests are not readily available. Adequate tests would test glare recovery and the ability to see clearly under low contrast conditions; both of these are important.
