AARP is a nonprofit, nonpartisan membership organization for people 50 and over.

These benefits include AARP Webplace at www.aarp.org, Modern Maturity and My Generation magazines, and the monthly AARP Bulletin.

One of our activities:The AARP DRIVER SAFETY PROGRAM is a classroom driver improvement course designed for motorists age 50 and up. The eight-hour course is typically taught in two, four-hour sessions over two days. It provides practical techniques for coping with changes in vision, hearing and reaction time along with many defensive techniques to help drivers of all ages. Pennsylvania residents over 55 are eligible for a 5% discount on their auto insurance policy. To enroll, you must pre-register with a sponsor location. Cost is $14 or $12 for AARP Members. For local course information, call toll free at (888) 227-7669 or visit http://www.aarp.org/drive/ . An online course locator is available also.
Other activity areas of interest are also available.
The instruction was very informative in a relaxed enviornment. The facilitator was very knowledgable and clear while going over the material. Valuable reminders on key points such as how to have the wheels of your vehicle positioned while preparing to make a left turn for example in such a way as to prevent accidents with oncoming traffic in the event of being hit from behind while waiting to proceed, following distance, proper use of highbeams at night, understanding ALL traffic signs and realizing that with age some handicaps are realized as a result. This is an excellant program that will continue to assist the senior community today and the future. I recommend the entire driving community participate in refresher training such as this one conducted by AARP periodically. In my view periodically would mean every 5 years for example. Thank you very much for the opportunity to render feedback on this program.
