AARP will offer two driver safety courses

July 13, 2012

AARP is offering its driver safety course to those who are employed or retired from the education field.

The course this month and in August will be offered at a reduced cost of $5.

The offer is for teachers, professors, principals, guidance counselors, school secretaries, administrators, cafeteria workers, maintenance and janitorial personnel, bus drivers and anyone else who is retired from or is working for any private or public education institution. It also includes parents who home-school their children and Sunday school teachers.

Recent studies have shown that those who take the course have fewer accidents than those who do not. Some insurance companies offer a discount to those who have successfully completed the course.

The focus of the course is to make good drivers better.

There will be two four-hour courses planned this month and in August in the Hagerstown area. The sessions will be Thursday from 1 to 5 p.m. and Aug. 21 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This is a classroom-only course. There are no driving or written tests.

Although the course is designed for those 50 and older, it is open to anyone who wants to be a safe driver.
