Brush up on your driving skills by taking an AARP Driver Safety course. The four-hour course is available at numerous locations throughout Massachusetts. All classroom courses are taught by trained AARP volunteers.
By taking an AARP Driver Safety course, you will learn:
In addition to learning safety strategies that can reduce the likelihood of a crash, participants of the course will learn how aging, medications, alcohol, and other health-related issues affect driving ability, and how to adjust driving accordingly to allow for these changes. The course also helps participants determine when it may not be best to drive (e.g., late at night, inclement weather, etc.) and how to plan for a time when driving is no longer an option.
As the nation’s first and largest driver safety course designed especially for older drivers, AARP Driver Safety has helped over 15 million participants refresh their skills and stay safe on the road since 1979.
AARP Driver Safety offers classroom and online courses. The classroom course costs $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. The online course costs $19.95 for members and $24.95 for non-members. Although the program is geared toward drivers 50 and older, licensed drivers of all ages are welcome to participate. There are no official tests to pass in order to graduate from the program. Space is limited, so register now.
