Save Money! Take the AARP Safe Driving Class

Posted on 03/26/2014 by | AARP North Dakota | Comments

The AARP Driver Safety course can help you brush up on your driving skills and develop safe driving strategies.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 license, 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.

AARP’s four-hour driver safety class is taught by trained AARP volunteers. There are no tests.

The cost is $15 for members and $20 for non-members. The course is open to people of all ages. Those who complete the course are eligible for a discount on their auto insurance premiums of at least five percent. (The discount varies by company.)
