Thursday, April 6, 2017 is the next scheduled AARP Driver Safety Class sponsored by the Carbon County Senior Center from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation’s largest driver safety class designed especially for drivers age 50 and older.
Cars have changed and so have traffic rules. Driving conditions and the roads you travel every day. Even the most experienced drivers can benefit from brushing up on their driving skills. By taking the course you’ll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today’s increasing driving environment.
In addition, you’ll learn how to minimize the effects of dangerous blind spots, how to maintain the proper following distance, the safest ways to change lanes and make turns at busy intersections. The effects of medications, the importance of eliminating distractions such as eating, smoking and cell phones will also be discussed.
Upon completion of the 4-hour class you will be given a certificate to present to your insurance agent to receive a discount on your premiums that will be good for three years. AARP membership is not required to take the class and there are no tests to pass.
