An AARP Driver Safety Course for drivers 50 years of age and older will be presented at the AARP Maine State Office, 1685 Congress St., Portland, on Monday, June 19, and Wednesday, June 21. Classes will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on each of the two dates and participants must attend both sessions to complete the course.

The registration fee is $10 per person and advance registration is required. To register, please phone John Hammon, AARP volunteer instructor, at (207) 655-4943. Although class size is limited, registrations will be accepted as long as space is still available.

The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation’s first and largest classroom refresher course designed to meet the safety needs of experienced and mature drivers. It is an eight-hour class which helps drivers learn about defensive driving techniques, new traffic laws, rules of the road and much more.

It helps older drivers learn how to adjust their driving to age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time. Also, because of a law now on the books in the State of Maine, drivers 55 years of age and older who complete this course are eligible for auto insurance discounts.
