Volunteer to Help Keep the District's Roads Safe


Volunteers are needed to help keep District of Columbia roads safe—and to keep older drivers confident behind the wheel. Volunteers receive training to teach in-person AARP Smart Driver courses, which are held both online and at community centers, hospitals, libraries and other sites.

Geared to people 50 and older, the course refreshes skills, updating motorists on vehicle technology, safety techniques and rules around bike lanes, roundabouts and other road features.

The course also helps drivers get a proper fit in their cars. Instructors determine their own schedules for teaching the six-hour class. To learn more or to become a volunteer, go to For more information, email To find upcoming courses in D.C., visit
