An AARP driver safety course for drivers 50 years of age and older will be presented at the Windham Public Library, 217 Windham Center Road in Windham, on two consecutive Saturdays, Sept. 22 and 29. 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, call John Hammon, AARP volunteer instructor, at 655-4943. Class size is limited and registrations will be accepted only 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. And it helps older drivers learn how to adjust their driving to age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.

Also, insurance companies in the state of Maine are now required by law to give discounts to drivers 55 years of age and older who complete this course.
