Carfit

CarFit is a programme that helps older drivers make the best use their vehicle's safety feature so that they can continue to drive safely and retain independent mobility for as long as possible.

It includes a 12 Point Check-Up of how well you personally "fit" your vehicle and provides related information and recommendations that can improve your driving safety.

CarFit is a voluntary community education programme which is FREE to drivers who want to take advantage of it.
