The Carbon County Senior Center will host the new AARP Safe Driver Course on Thursday, Jan. 9 from 1 – 5 p.m.
The Smart Driver Course has replaced the Driver Safety class that has ben taught for the past several years. The new course features the most informative and relevant content from previous course editions reflecting the latest driver safety and transportation innovations along with fresh information based on new research and expert recommendations.
This new course offers an important opportunity for seniors 55 years of age and older, to relearn how to drive more efficiently and safely.
The course contains up-to-date information about changes over time in drivers, vehicles and roads. The course can also help drivers boost safety awareness, improve driving skills, minimize crash risks, increase driving confidence, prolong mobility and maintain independence.
There are not any written or driving tests. When participants complete the course they receive a certificate to give to their automobile insurance company for a reduction on premiums that is good for three years. After this time, the class can be taken again for another three-year rate reduction.
