AARP Driver Safety is introducing its new Smart Driver course as the latest revision of the nation’s first and largest classroom refresher class for mature and experienced drivers. Class participants learn about defensive driving techniques, safe driving strategies, new traffic laws, rules of the road and much more. The class helps older drivers adjust their driving to age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. Many insurance companies give multi-year discounts to drivers who take the course and older drivers are encouraged to take and re-take the refresher course once every three years.
