AARP Classes Help Older Drivers Become Safer Drivers

By Joseph Low on November 4, 2014 - Comments off

Drivers over age 50 face a number of challenges that younger drivers don’t face. This fact surprises many older drivers, who assume that their decades of experience must help them drive more safely.  But the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) and many experienced California car accident lawyers recognize that older drivers need the tools to help them drive safely.

The AARP offers driving classes aimed specifically at drivers age 50 and older.  The classes can be taken online or at one of many locations in southern California.  Although you do not need to be an AARP member to take the class, AARP members do receive a discount on the cost of enrollment.

It is true that experience behind the wheel can improve your driving safety.  But all drivers can use a “refresher” course on how to drive defensively, operate the newest technological features in cars, and understand the current rules of the road.  When combined with information on how to accommodate the most common age-related changes that affect driving, a driving course for older drivers can be a powerful tool in helping you to prevent car accidents.

The AARP Smart Driver Course has taught over 15 million Americans how to be safer drivers, according to AARP Driver Safety.  Classes are available in English and Spanish.  And if learning how to drive safely and keep your license as you age wasn’t incentive enough, some auto insurers sweeten the deal further by offering insurance discounts to drivers who successfully complete the class.  To find out if you qualify for a discount, talk to your insurance agent.
