As we age, most of us become more experienced drivers and we drive more carefully. We may not have the same reflexes as we had when we were younger, but experience offsets that handicap.  Nonetheless, as we age, we also become more challenged because of the aging process, medical ailments and the medications we are required to take. Seniors receive special birthday coupons and may be lucky enough to get a personalized stone engraving.  However, most folks are unaware that there are courses offered for seniors which reduce the likelihood of an accident and therefore the likelihood that our insurance company will have to pay out for us.  That is why folks that take a driver safety course receive a discount from their insurance company.

Some courses are offered online while others use a classroom setting.  Naturally, there is a fee for the course and a certificate is awarded.  One of the most popular courses is offered by AARP.  Each state has its own rules for class length which varies from four hours up to eight hours.  The AARP course awards a certificate which is good for three years.  Discounts vary from company to company

Some won’t admit it, but as we age, our driving ability changes. The years of experience tend to make us more careful drivers; however our reflexes change as a result of aging, medications, hearing and visual aptitude. We compensate for this by being more alert and anticipating danger. Still, there are some drivers, over age 55, who believe that their reflexes are as good as they were 40 years earlier. They continue to take chances and get away with it until one day they make a mistake and there is a crash. This is a crash that could have been avoided. The secret is for older drivers to take a driver safety course.

AARP and others provide classroom training to make older drivers better behind the wheel. As an example, see if you can answer these two simple questions:

1. What should the distance be between me and the car in front?

2. What do I do when the traffic lights are not working?

If you are not certain of the answers enroll in a course and get a discount on your insurance.

These messages of encouragement are brought to you but a certified driving instructor

In most states, drivers who take the AARP driver safety course receive a discount from their insurance companies. In most states, the class is a six hour obligation and there are no tests to pass. Only attendance is required. The instructors are unpaid, certified volunteers. Using videos and student manuals, participants learn how our bodies change as we get older and how to make adjustments for those changes to avoid the possibility of crashes and serious injury. Keep an inspirational paperweight in your car to remind you of what you learned.

Students receive a certificate after completing the course and send a copy to their insurance companies to obtain their discounts. Certificates are valid for three years. As an alternative, some drivers prefer to take the course online in the convenience of their homes. Online courses require students to take quizzes before moving on to the next topic. There is a small fee for the course. AARP members receive a discounted price.
