This course is designed for seniors 50 and older but anyone can attend. The course includes current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and operating your vehicle more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment. You will learn adjustments to accommodate age related changes. Information on aggressive drivers, air bags, seat restraints and new technologies, and much more is provided.

Oregon State Law provides for a discount on auto insurance premium for most drivers completing this course. Attendance at the entire class is required to receive your certificate of completion.

Cost for the class is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. Tuition is payable at the start of class with checks made payable to AARP.
