AARP Driver Safety Class scheduled

On Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013, an AARP’s Driver Safety class is scheduled to be held at Shelby Senior Services, 1504 South Harrison Street in Shelbyville. This is a 4-hour class aimed at keeping older drivers on the road safely and saving lives. AARP driver safety instructor Mary Sullivan will be teaching the class which starts at 11:30 a.m.

Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions, and the roads you travel every day. Some drivers age 50+ have never looked back since they got their first driver’s licenses, but even the most experienced drivers can benefit from brushing up on their driving skills.

By taking a driver safety course you’ll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment. You’ll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.

You may be eligible to receive an insurance discount upon completing the course, so consult your agent for details. You might also be eligible to receive a discount on roadside assistance plans.

Founded in 1979, AARP Driver Safety has helped millions of drivers stay safe on the roads. Although the course is geared to drivers age 50 and older, the course is open to people of all ages. After successfully completing the course you’ll receive a certificate of completion that can be presented to your insurance agent for a possible reduction in your auto insurance premiums.

This 4-hour class is scheduled to begin at 11:30 a.m. at Shelby Senior Services, 1504 South Harrison Street, in Shelbyville. The cost to AARP members is $12 and $14 for non-AARP members. To register for this class or for further information, please call 317-398-0127 and ask to be added to the class list. When you come to the class please bring your AARP membership card if you are an AARP member and your driver’s license. Participants probably should eat lunch before they attend or bring a snack with them.
