As older drivers have a higher risk of being killed in a crash than any other age group, learning how to keep using the roads safely is vital so you can keep your independence and reduce your risk of injury.
The TAC and La Trobe University have put together a community health program for senior road users which provides information on road safety issues and ways to safely keep mobile around your community.
The Community Mobility for Older People (CMOP) program focuses on how individuals can keep mobile as they age and as their health needs change. For many years this successful program has been helping older road users throughout metropolitan and rural regions with pedestrian, cycling, public transport, motorised scooters and driving road safety and health issues.
The course is presented by professional occupational therapy driver assessors who are skilled in driving and community mobility. They provide an interactive face to face Power Point presentation and participants are given all relevant hand outs and resources.
Book information sessions
We strongly encourage community groups to make this important presentation available to older members of their community, their parents or caregivers. All you need to provide is a venue that allows a data projector and screen, refreshments for participants and at least 30 participants.
