The American Cancer Society will host an AARP Driver Safety class on Thursday, Aug. 23 at 10 am in Williston. The 4.5-hour refresher course is open to all drivers 50 years and older. The curriculum addresses the normal physical changes brought on by the aging process, how these changes can affect driving ability, and then offers ways to compensate for those changes. The course also deals with changes in vehicles, regulations, and roads. Participants will also learn how to interact with other road users, including truckers, bikers, pedestrians, and distracted drivers.
Many insurance companies offer a discount to drivers who have completed the clas s. Drivers who have qualified for a discount by taking the course must take a refresher course every three years. There are no tests.
August is teacher appreciation month whereby anyone involved now or previously in the field of education is permitted to take the class fo r a nominal fee of $5. The fee for the course is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members.
