AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation's first and largest classroom driver safety course designed especially for drivers age 50 and older. Since the program began in 1979, over 11 million participants have completed the course.
The course covers the normal changes in vision, hearing and reaction time associated with aging and provides practical techniques and how to adjust to these changes. Participants also learn how to operate their vehicles more safely in today's increasingly challenging driving environment. There is also a thorough review of the "rules of the road" with an emphasis on safety strategies.
The course cost $14 ($12 for AARP members) and is offered free to veterans and their spouses in November. It lasts 8 hours, typically taught in two 4 hour sessions, spanning 2 days. Some one day and weekend courses are also available.
Through the Ripley County TRIAD, we can arrange for the Driver Safety Program to be scheduled in locations in Ripley County. If you or your church or organization is interested, contact Robin at 812-689-5558 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
