Seniors encouraged to take AARP Safe Driver Course Oct. 10

The Heineberg Senior Center will host the AARP Driver Safety Class on Thursday, Oct. 10 at 9 am. 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 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 $2 discount. Checks must be received prior to the class.

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 the Senior Center at 863-3982.
