55 Alive Driver Refresher Course
We anticipate there will be several courses scheduled in the late spring of 2022.
Refresh Your Driving Skills for Today's Traffic
The 55 Alive Driver Refresher Course is designed for adults age 55 years and over to help participants maintain their independence and their driving privileges. This course covers a wide-variety of materials and shows participants how to adjust their skills to compensate for physical changes that may occur with aging.
The 55 Alive Course is designed to help participants . . .
- Gain more confidence behind the wheel
- Improve your awareness of traffic hazards
- Update yourself on traffic laws and new technology
- Anticipate the actions of other drivers
- Identify and correct bad driving habits
- Voice your concerns in a friendly, relaxed environment
The six-hour program is held over two days in a classroom setting using PowerPoint presentations, student workbooks, and group discussions guided by a seasoned instructor. A fee of $10 per person covers the cost of the course manual and refreshments.
The Canada Safety Council designed the 55 Alive Driver Refresher Course and our instructors are trained and certified through the council. The P.E.I. Senior Citizens' Federation has administered the program since 2002.
55 Alive Driver Refresher Courses are held at locations across the Island in both English and French. For more information or to register for a course, contact the P.E.I. Senior Citizens' Federation at 902-368-9008.
The 55 Alive Driving Program is a partnership between the P.E.I. Senior Citizens' Federation, the Canada Safety Council, the P.E.I. Department of Transportation and Infrastructure under the direction of Minister James Aylward and the P.E.I. Department of Social Development and Housing under the direction of Minister Brad Trivers.
