Senior Center to host driver safety program

Posted
BELLOWS FALLS — The AARP Drivers Safety Course addresses the normal physical changes brought on by the aging process, how these changes can affect driving ability and then offers ways to compensate for those changes. The course also addresses changes in vehicles, regulations and roads. Participants will also learn how to interact with other road users, including truckers, bikers, pedestrians and distracted drivers. Many insurance companies offer a discount to drivers who have completed the class.

Drivers who have qualified for a discount by taking the course must take a refresher course every three years. There are no tests.

The program will be held on Monday, May 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The fee is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members.

Registration for this course is required. Register by mailing a check made out to AARP to the Senior Center at 18 Tuttle St., Bellows Falls, Vt., 05101. The center is handicap accessible and ample parking is available. For more information, call 802-463-3907.
