AARP Driver Certification Course

Cars have changed and so have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel every day. By taking a driver safety course you’ll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment. You’ll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. AARP members will receive a $5 refund at the end of the course. Instructed by Jim Kaplan.

Location: Arrowhead Community Center
Fee: $20 for class materials and handbook

Date Day Time Deadline
July 12 & 13 TH & F 9AM-1 PM July 6

Benefits to AARP – FREE!

Once you reach 50, you’re likely to start hearing jokes about getting senior discounts. But reaching a certain age actually does present some new opportunities, like an AARP membership. AARP members have access to discounts on insurance and other products and services. Come hear what the AARP representative has to say and ask any question you have. Snacks and refreshments will available.
