It’s been many years since most residents 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 the AARP Vermont offices at 199 Main St 2nd Fl. in downtown Burlington. The class runs from 9 am – 1:30 pm. Public parking is available under the building.
Cars have changed. So have the traffic rules, driving conditions, and the roads you travel every day. Some drivers age 50-plus have never looked back since they got their first driver's licenses, but even the most experienced benefit from brushing up on their driving skills.
Congratulations go out to Doug Masson of Cambridge who was recently recognized as Volunteer of the Year for the Northeast region of the AARP Driver Safety Program. Doug is well deserving of the award and is an example of the kind of volunteer who routinely goes above and beyond -- for both his students and in supporting the statewide program. Dave Peters, former state coordinator for Vermont shared the following upon nominating Doug for this recognition:
