Cariboo Chilcotin MLA Donna Barnett is confident there’ll be some positive changes to the DriveABLE program by the fall.
“I’ve been working very closely with the ministry as parliamentary secretary for rural communities to make the DriveABLE accessible and close to home,” Barnett says.
“At this time all I can say is that everybody should pay attention. If any senior gets a letter I want them to call my office if they have to go out of town for a test.”
In the fall, she hopes to see some good news happen in the region.
If people fail the computer test they can take a driving test with a car provided by the province.
“Many, many seniors have said they have no problem going to take a test, as we all don’t, if we’re not safe on the road. Sometimes we think we’re safe, but it’s still good to get tested.”
