Did you know that AARP’s Driver Safety Program has changed its course curriculum?
The new and improved course was designed with the participant in mind, and it is different in many ways from previous editions including a completely new, easy-to-follow format that incorporates adult-learning principles, features reader-friendly print types, full-color pages, an easy-to-follow format and videos to supplement course content.
There are also new opportunities for participants to learn state-specific information throughout the course in a way that is easier to understand.
All components of the AARP Smart Driver Course have been translated and tested for Spanish-speaking participants.
As a result of evidence-based research findings, the course has been adjusted to include a focus on areas where older drivers could benefit from additional training, including:
- Pavement markings
- Stop-sign compliance
- Red-light running
- Safety issues such as speeding, and seatbelt and turn-signal use
In addition to a new curriculum, AARP Driver Safety recently launched the Driving Resource Center — an interactive online resource for course participants that features tools and activities, including driving simulations, state-specific rules of the road and new vehicle technologies.
