Smart Driver Courses Offered Statewide

It’s been many years since most Delawareans got their driver’s license. Yet, the driving experience is significantly different from even a decade ago – changing vehicles, changing technology, changing road rules, and even changing roadways. Residents can refresh their skills and have the opportunity to save money on their car insurance with the AARP Smart Driver course being offered at convenient locations statewide.

The curriculum was developed following a two-year research study conducted by Eastern Virginia Medical School and help drivers stay current with driving laws and new technologies inside and outside of vehicles. Participants will also learn defensive driving skills, proven safety strategies and how to manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.

Since 1979, AARP Driver Safety has helped over 16 million drivers stay safe, educated and confident behind the wheel. Every driver can benefit from a refresher,” says AARP State President George Meldrum. “Better driving makes our communities stronger and safer.”

There are no tests required to pass the course, and many participants may be eligible for a multi-year insurance discount after taking the course. Participants are encouraged to check with their insurance agent to see if they are eligible.

The course is open to drivers of all ages, and is discounted for AARP members. For more information and to register for a class, visit www.aarp.org/drive or call 888-227-7669.
