Attendees will also be provided with details of a practical one-hour driving assessment if wanted.
Cllr Heulwen Hulme, Cabinet Member for Environment, said, "Ensuring that our roads are safe is hugely important for our county. I would urge mature drivers across Powys to take advantage of this fantastic scheme. These free workshops are so important because they will refresh and update essential driving skills and could ultimately help save lives."
