A four-and-a-half hour AARP (American Association of Retired Persons) Driver Safety course that will help tune up driving skills, teach safe driving strategies and update information on the rules of the road will be held at the Germantown Library on Wednesday, October 23 from 1 to 5:30 p.m. The library is at 19840 Century Blvd.
The instructor will provide information about normal age-related physical changes and how to adjust driving to allow for the changes. Students who complete the course will receive a certificate. Some insurance companies operating in Maryland consider drivers who take the course qualified for a reduced auto insurance premium.
Class registration fee is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members. The instructor will collect the fee on class day. AARP members should bring their membership cards to class, and all participants should bring a check payable to AARP and a pen.
Registration is required and available online. Space is limited, and the deadline for registering is October 22 at 5 p.m. For staff assistance, call the Germantown Library at 240-777-0110.
