The AARP Driver Safety Program, sponsored by Richland Public Health, will have its first class of 2017 on Tuesday, March 21. The class will be in the Corley Room (lower level parking lot) at Richland Public Health, 555 Lexington Ave.
The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation’s first and largest classroom refresher course for motorists age 50 and older. The class is a one-day four-hour course that keeps older drivers up-to-date on changes in our roadways and vehicles as well as how to compensate for normal age-related driving changes. The course uses the “Smart Driver” information that was completely revised in 2014 with new material and videos.
The March 21 class starts at 9:00 AM and runs until 1:00 PM. Coffee and refreshments will be provided. Cost for the class is $15 for AARP members and $20 for all others. The cost pays for the study book that participants can keep for reference. Class size is limited to 25. Walk-ins are welcome if there are openings. To register, call Health Education/Promotion at Richland Public Health, 419-774-4726.
“Anyone who took this course in 2013 or earlier should consider a refresher this year in order to keep their AARP insurance discounts,” said Reed Richmond, Health Educator at Richland Public Health and a co-instructor for the course. “Auto insurance discounts may be available to others who complete the course but you should check with your insurance agent or provider.”
