Assess your driving skills for free on Sunday 7 August

Drivers and riders of all ages and abilities are invited to Dunoon Grammar School on Sunday 7 August.

The Institute of Advanced Motorists (IAM) will be hosting a Drive Scot Free event, offering free and expert assessment of drivers’ motoring skills, expert guidance and manoeuvrability sessions.

Officers from Police Scotland’s Argyll and West Dunbartonshire Community Engagement Team will also be in attendance to provide advice on road traffic legislation and driving licence requirements.

Jim Bowles from IAM said: “At the Institute of Advanced Motorists we say that having your driving skills periodically reviewed is part of being a responsible motorist. It is a great way to ensure that you and your passengers are safe.

“Even if you are an excellent driver, our expert assessor can make sure your skills are as sharp as they can be.”

Police Constable Laura Evans said: “Whether you are a young and a new driver or a more mature driver with years of motoring experience, this event will be of benefit.

“Argyll and West Dunbartonshire is a very diverse area, with many rural communities where people rely on their own transport. Some might have passed their driving test decades ago and done very little since to test their ability so it would be of particular benefit for drivers in that category to come along and have their skills assessed.”

The event is being provided free of charge with local sponsorship from Morrisons and Shearwater Marine with Argyll and Bute Council providing use of Dunoon Grammar School.

Local and alternative transport providers including Interloch, PINGO Bus from West Coast Motors and Taxi George will be providing their contact details on the day for those considering an alternative to their car or motorbike.

Car drivers and motorbike riders are invited to bring their vehicles to Dunoon Grammar School on Sunday 7 August between 10:30am to 3:30pm. Relatives are also welcome.

There is no need to book – simply turn up on the day.
