AARP Smart Driver Course

Wednesday, September 27, 2023

o?AARP Smart Driver Course

Wednesday, September 27th, 10:00am to 3:00pm      Open to out-of-town seniors beginning September 18th 

Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions, and the roads you travel on every day. Although older Americans live a healthier lifestyle than the generations before them, they are still more likely than younger drivers to experience vision, hearing, or other impairments that could create risks on the road. The AARP Smart Driver course is designed specifically for drivers aged 50 and over to help them continue to drive longer and safer. It is designed to help:

  • Learn research-based strategies that can reduce the likelihood of having a crash.
  • Understand the links between the driver, vehicle, and road environment and how this awareness encourages safer behavior.
  • Learn how aging, medications, alcohol, and other health-related issues affect driving ability, and ways to adjust to allow for these changes.
  • Increase confidence.
  • Know how to drive safely when sharing the road with others. 
  • Learn the newest safety and advanced features in vehicles.
  • Learn when driving may no longer be safe.
  • Explore other ways to travel.

The cost is $20 for AARP members and $25 for non-members by cash or check payable to AARP; please drop off payment at the Senior Center reception desk or mail it to us before September 27th. Participants will receive a certificate at the end of class, which may result in an insurance discount, depending on insurance provider. There will be a break for lunch; bring your own or you may purchase lunch at the Senior Center café (cost is $6).
