The AARP Smart Driver course is the nation’s first refresher course specifically designed for drivers age 50 and older. In many states, drivers may benefit from a discount on their auto insurance premium upon completing the course. And you will learn something new along the way. In fact, an evaluation of the course found that 97% of participants changed at least one driving habit as a result of what they learned.

Our Smart Driver virtual course will help you:

  • Receive a multi-year discount on your auto insurance*
  • Refresh your driving skills and your knowledge of the rules - and hazards - of the road.
  • Reduce your chances of receiving a traffic violation or getting into a crash.
  • Live Instructor

The AARP Smart Driver virtual course covers:

  • Research-based safe driving strategies.
  • Information on the effects of medication on driving.
  • Preventive measures to reduce driver distractions.
  • Proper use of safety belts, air bags, anti-lock brakes, and new technology found in cars today.
  • Techniques for handling left turns, right-of-way, and roundabouts.
  • State-specific rules and regulations in 22 key areas, including construction zones, child safety seats, school buses, cellphone use and more.
