AARP Safe Driver Program for Seniors

Participants will learn defensive driving techniques, new traffic laws, rules of the road, how to compensate for age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time, and more. For those who have never taken the course, or have taken the course more than 3 years ago, a more intensive 8-hour, 2 day course will be offered Tues and Wed, Jan 8 and 9, 2019, 1 – 5:30 pm. Participants should bring glasses, pen, and beverage, (brown bag lunch for the shorter course); coffee, tea, water and light snacks will be provided.
