Wake Robin in Shelburne will host an AARP Driver Safety Course on Friday, Nov. 15, at 12 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, offering 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 attend a refresher course every 3 years.
The fee for the course is $14; AARP members receive a $2 discount. Checks for the class 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 Krista Malaney at 264-5107.
