It is more important than ever as cars, traffic rules, and driving conditions have changed that drivers stay up-to-date and learn ways to stay safe while behind the wheel. Each year AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) hosts a driver safety program for drivers age 50 or older to help them brush up on their skills. On August 23, 2012 from 4:00 to 8:00 P.M. at the Rowan County Board of Education Building on Second Street, AARP will host a special Driver Safety Program Course for retired staff from Rowan County Schools as well as current Rowan County Schools faculty and staff who are 50 or older.
The cost of the course is only $5 for retired and current Rowan County School faculty and staff members who meet the age qualifications. AARP membership is not required to participate in the Driver Safety Program. The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation’s first and largest course designed for drivers ages 50 and older. Drivers will learn proven strategies to help maintain their confidence behind the wheel. Plus, they’ll also save money. Legislation in many states requires insurance companies to offer a discount on premiums to drivers who successfully complete the AARP Driver Safety Program Course.
