Tuesday and Thursday, Sept. 11 and 13, 9:30–1:30
Note: Class usually finishes early. Bring a snack.
Instructor: David Hall
Class limit: 55
The goal of this class is to help senior drivers in Northern Virginia drive safely, longer. The class will review the senior driver as a demographic group, as well as the effects of aging. It will cover what one should know and do to drive safely, as well as automobile and driving strategies, technology, new laws, and trends. We will address the question: “Should I be thinking about limiting my driving?” The class will include video clips, infographics, lecture, personal experiences, and relevant Q&A. An AARP guidebook and the latest DMV Rules of the Road will be provided. This class is approved by the Virginia legislature, which mandates an appropriate auto insurance discount for three years after a completion certificate is presented to the insurance company. The class is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members and is payable at the class. Bring cash or check and your AARP card if you have one.
