The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation's first and largest refresher course for driver's ages 50 and older. Participants will update their knowledge of today's roads, traffic laws, vehicles, the effects of medications on driving and how to adjust their driving to suit common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.
Safe driving is a challenge for all drivers. People attending the class will learn driving strategies that take into account the effects of aging. They will identify the most common crash situations and how to reduce the chances of having a crash. Seniors who take part in the training not only learn useful skills, but may be eligible for discounts on their auto insurance.
