Lisa Thompson from the Ministry of Transportation gave an excellent presentation on February 25 on Safe Winter Driving. We learnt a lot of information which was extremely useful. She will be returning in March for another presentation on 'Safe Senior Driving During a Pandemic'.
Topics will include:
-Trends & statistics for older drivers
-Service Ontario and drive test services
-Driving tips for older drivers
-Vehicle tips for time of disuse
I have already received interesting questions for Lisa to answer such as:
"Help - I turned 80 in May 2020. Due to Covid-19 my Over 80 examination was postponed. The Ministry sent me a temporary licence which expired on June 30 2020. What should I do?"
Get answers to questions such as this at our presentation on Monday, March 15 at 1:30pm.
