AARP Driver Safety
Safe driving is a challenge for all drivers, but risks to safe driving arise with aging that affect vision, hearing, reaction time and judgment/cognition. Studies have shown fewer fatal or injury-causing crashes and violations occur among drivers (55+) who have taken this nationally-recognized course. The AARP Course’s goal is to keep seniors safe and mobile. Family members may also register for the course to understand the issues facing older adults.
