DRIVING SIMULATOR UNVEILED IN INVERELL

There’s a new way for elderly drivers to test their skills with a virtual reality simulator unveiled in Inverell today.

A partnership between McLean Care, Deakin University and the federal government has seen the Australian-first slowly take shape, after months of trials with McLean Care residents.

It’s aimed at those over 85 who are tested every two years to make sure they can hold on to their driver’s licence.
