[Reminder the next class will be held March 25th!] 

A lot has changed since AARP Driver Safety first began as “55 Alive.” The roads have changed. Cars and the technology inside them have changed. Even the people behind the wheel have changed. As drivers, if we don’t keep up with those changes we put others and ourselves at risk.

To help with AARP Driver Safety’s efforts to keep up with these changes, Toyota gave the AARP Foundation a three-year, $12.6 million grant to invest in and improve the quality of education and resources available to older drivers. Through the grant, AARP Driver Safety was able to collaborate with the nation’s top experts in mobility, aging, technology, and vehicle and driver safety to develop AARP Smart Driver Course. It also worked with its nationwide team of volunteers to ensure that the new course would be as effective as possible.

The course will be held at Northside Forsyth Medical Center in the Bennet Education Center. The classes begin at 8:15am and run for 6 hours with a half hour for lunch at noon. You can either bring a sack lunch or eat at the hospital cafeteria.

The cost for the training is $15 for AARP members and $20 for members.

The classes will be held: February 11th, March 25th, April 22nd

Contact 770-343-9500 to register.
