Road safety – Test yourself


Make sure you are keeping safe on the road. Take our test.

Road safety isn’t just for kids – it’s for life!

Pedestrians and drivers alike need to make sure they are keeping safe on the roads. We have some helpful leaflets that can help you make sure you’re as safe as you can be on the roads.


Our flyer is full of top tips on how you can keep safe on the roads. Take a look here and test yourself.


Our questionnaire is designed to prompt you to think about your driving. You can read more and take
the test here.

Befriending is aimed at people who are socially isolated and may have mobility or other disability issues. This service gives people the opportunity to meet with a volunteer in their own home or be accompanied for a walk, shopping or other activities agreed between ROAR and the older person.

Roar Connections For Life has 12 Clubs in 10 venues across Renfrewshire where members enjoy a healthy two course lunch along with a health and wellbeing activity.
