Wake Robin hosts AARP Safe Driver Course

Wake Robin in Shelburne will host the AARP Driver Safety Class on Friday, Nov. 30 at 12:30 pm. 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 and how these changes can affect driving ability, and then offers ways to compensate for those changes. The course also addresses changes in vehicles, regulations, and roads. Participants will also learn how to interact with other road users, including truckers, bikers, pedestrians, and distracted drivers.

Some insurance companies offer a discount to drivers who have completed the class. Drivers who have qualified for a discount by taking the course must take a refresher course every three years.

The fee for the course is $14; AARP members receive a two-dollar discount. Checks for the class must be received prior to the class.

For the month of November the class will be offered free of charge to all veterans and their family members. Individuals wishing to participate in this offer must register for the class in advance.

Class size is limited so early registration is recommended and pre-registration is required. For more information or to reserve a space in the upcoming training session, please call Krista Malaney, 264-5107 or email bairdmorgan@myfairpoint.net.
