AARP Missouri is recruiting instructors to teach AARP Driver Safety classes. The course refreshes participants’ defensive driving skills, updates their knowledge of traffic laws and offers tips on how to deal with aggressive drivers and other hazards on the road.

Last year Missouri volunteers taught 274 classes to 3,276 participants. Some insurance companies offer discounts on automobile liability coverage to Missouri drivers who complete the course.

To become an instructor, volunteers must take the four-hour classroom course, plus eight to 12 hours of training. New instructors co-teach classes until they feel confident to go solo.

“The program’s success is entirely dependent on volunteers,” said Anita Parran, AARP Missouri spokeswoman. Interested? Email
