Driver safety program

offered at senior center

The AARP Driver Safety Program (formerly AARP 55 ALIVE) is the nation’s first and largest classroom refresher course designed especially for drivers ages 50 and older.

Hendricks County Senior Services will offer the four-hour course from 8 a.m. to noon Oct. 15. Participants can learn defensive driving techniques, new traffic laws, and rules of the road. Through interactive learning, participants will find out how to safely adjust their driving to compensate for age-related changes in vision, hearing, and reaction time.

Automobile insurance discounts are available in most states for those who complete the course. The fee is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. There are no tests.

Registration is required and space is limited. To register, call 745-4303. The entire course will be held in a classroom setting at the Hendricks County Senior Center, 1201 Sycamore Lane, Danville. Participants should bring a check made payable to AARP, a ball-point pen, and their driver’s license.
