ABOUT AARP DRIVER SAFETY
AARP Driver Safety first launched in 1979 as the “55 Alive” program to help to keep older drivers independent, safe, healthy and confident while on the road. Today, AARP Driver Safety continues to meet these needs of older drivers through leading educational programs that include the AARP Smart Driver Course, CarFit, We Need to Talk, and the Driving Resource Center. The flagship AARP Smart Driver Course is the nation’s largest classroom and online driver safety course and is designed especially for drivers age 50 and older. Over 15 million participants have gone through AARP Driver Safety classroom and online courses, taught by more than 4,300 AARP Driver Safety volunteers. The course is available in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. territories.

It is the policy of the Association that all AARP volunteers will receive equal opportunity and treatment throughout recruitment, appointment, training, and service. There will be no discrimination based on age, economic status, sex, national or ethnic origin, physical or mental abilities, race, sexual orientation, gender identity or religion.
