Cars have changed. So have traffic rules, driving conditions and the roads you travel every day.

Some drivers age 50-plus have never looked back since they got their first driver’s license, but even the most experienced drivers can benefit from brushing up on their driving skills.
The AARP Driver Safety Course will be offered from noon to 4:30 p.m., Monday, Feb. 2 at the Lexington Senior Citizens Center, 1530 Nicholasville Road.

Cost: $15 for AARP members; $20 for non-members.

Call the Senior Center to sign up for this course at (859) 278-6072.

By taking a driver safety course you’ll learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques and how to operate your vehicle more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment. You’ll learn how you can manage and accommodate common age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.

After completing the course, you will have a greater appreciation of driving challenges and a better understanding of how to avoid potential collisions and injuring yourself or others.

The AARP course, offered by AARP Driver Safety, is the nation’s largest classroom and online driver safety course and is designed especially for drivers age 50 and older. Over 15 million participants have gone through AARP Driver Safety classroom and online courses, taught by more than 4,000 AARP Driver Safety volunteers.
You may be eligible to receive an insurance discount upon completing the course, so consult your insurance agent for details.
