The AARP is gearing up to help equip Coral Springs’s most experienced drivers with the necessary skills needed to continue safely navigating the roads in their golden years.
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) will host a Safe Driving Class on Monday, August 14, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., at the Public Safety Community Room at 2801 Coral Springs Drive.
The six-hour course aims to equip attendees with essential techniques to handle the effects of aging while behind the wheel.
Deteriorating basic motor skills and reaction times can be an unfortunate byproduct of growing older, making driving a challenging task for some seniors.
The AARP Driver Course aims to offset these age-related challenges by helping participants develop safety habits and learn new driving techniques tailored to their needs.
Certified instructors will guide participants through various topics, including defensive driving strategies, dealing with distractions, and understanding the impact of certain medications on driving abilities.
A significant benefit of completing the AARP Driver Course is all attendees will receive a certificate of completion, which often leads to auto insurance companies issuing a cost reduction on premiums for up to three years.
To register for the upcoming AARP Safe Driving Class, individuals can call 954-346-1393 and provide their name and return phone number.
The AARP Safe Driving Class costs $20 per attendee for AARP members and $25 for non-members.
For those unable to attend this session, the AARP will host additional classes on Monday, October 16, and Monday, December 04, at the same time and location.
