AARP Driver Safety Classes for 50+

The AARP Driver Safety Class, offered from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at the Glenwood Springs Library, 815 Cooper Ave., is directed towards drivers 50 and over.

Most Colorado auto insurance companies offer discounts to those who complete the course.



There is a $15 fee for AARP members and a $20 fee for nonmembers for the workbook and handouts payable to the instructor.

The class covers the following driving topics: how to compensate for changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time; how to handle problem situations such as left turns, right of way, freeway traffic, trucks, and blind spots while driving; what to do if confronted by an aggressive driver; how medications may affect driving; how to properly use anti-lock brakes, air bags and safety belts; and how to assess your own and others’ driving abilities with a Personal Driving Capability Index.



AARP Driver Safety Classes are sponsored by High Country RSVP and taught by RSVP volunteers. High Country RSVP is a sponsored program of Colorado Mountain College. To register call 970-384-8747 or for more information email dspgws@rof.net
