I think that is a great program. As we get older our driving skills do diminish. And few are willing to see, just how much. Reflexes change as does vision. But older drivers do have one advantage, experience.

Peter,

About 18 months ago, I took a driver refresher course, not the same thing, mine was after having a spate of bad luck with driving and multiple speeding tickets (I was framed...really!) Actually, I was just catching up for driving 20 years without any tickets. Anyway, you are right about the experience older drivers have, but the refresher course was good. It reminded me of things I had forgotten and taught me things I didn't know.
