Special Events

Will You Pass Your Next Driving Test

According to the DMV, your mental and/or physical condition or your inability to follow traffic laws and rules regardless of age determines whether your license is renewed, restricted, suspended, or revoked. However, all drivers age 70 or older must renew their driver license in person at a DMV office. To prepare for this, Betty Berry will present a seminar that focuses on how to study for the written DMV test and provides hints on what you should do if required to take a road test. The talk is geared to make older adults more comfortable in taking driving tests and will also provide a collection of test questions. For reservations, call 517-6261.

Date: Thursday, August 8th
Time: 1:30 p.m.
