AARP Driver Safety Program – May 24
The AARP Driver Safety program is the nation’s first and largest refresher course for drivers. It has given millions of drivers the skills and tools they need to drive today’s roads safely. In fact, 97 percent of those who take it change at least one aspect of their driving. And the best part? No tests! Just useful information to stay safe on the road.
The course is designed to help you:
*Update driving skills and your knowledge of the rules – and hazards – of the road.
*Learn about normal age-related physical changes and how to adjust your driving to compensate.
*Reduce your chances for traffic violations, accidents and chances for injuries.
*Get an insurance discount. Auto insurance companies in most states provide a multi-year discount to AARP graduates! Please consult your insurance company for specifics.
Most states grant up to a 3 points reduction already accrued. Please contact your state Department of Motor Vehicles for specifics.
This first class will be given on May 24 from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm. (Six hours with a break for lunch.) The fee for AARP members is $17 and non-AARP members is $19.
