Driving Assessment.

As I am galloping towards my 70th birthday, I have my new 3 year licence in my wallet, I have had my eyes retested and passed as okay to drive (with my prescription lenses), so I have now arranged a 2 hour driving assessment with a local driving school.
My assessment will take place on Friday morning, it will include town, rural and motorway driving, and will be conducted in my own car. I am looking forward to it, but not without a little trepidation. I have been re-reading the Highway Code just in case I get any sneaky questions.
I'll let you know how I get on!

Good luck! I am interested in the results, I too will have to reapply for my license, but in 40 years time haha. Will be interesting to see, as the majority of poor driving on the roads is by the older generation I find. Not always, but generally speaking, without being disrespectful.

I had my driving assessment this morning. We covered 74 miles which were composed of motorway, rural and town driving. I was driving for 2 hours exactly, and the price was 40. My assessor, an ADI with a local driving school, is also an assessor for IAM Road Smart. It was the IAM system he used to mark me. I am pleased to say I was marked Grade 1 in every category (Excellent) and as a result, Excellent overall. I am highly delighted. He said that as a passenger, it was a relaxing enjoyable drive. We had lovely weather, even if the roads were busy (Bank holiday this weekend).
The only advice he gave me was not to do huge long journeys. At 70 years of age, long drives can be exceptionally tiring, but he reckoned I have many years of driving ahead of me.

Pretty good fella, you must be pleased. I'm glad you're not one of the many older bad drivers. Perhaps you should notify your insurance of the assessment, they may offer a discount or partial refund, worth a shot.

My insurance is due for renewal in just under two months, so I will see what happens then.
