AARP Smart Driver Course to be Offered at Germantown Library

A four-and-a-half hour AARP Smart Driver course will be presented at the Germantown Library on Thursday, May 22 from 1 to 5:30 p.m. The library is located at 19840 Century Blvd.

Participants will have an opportunity to tune up driving skills, learn safe driving strategies and update knowledge of the rules of the road. The instructor will provide information about normal age-related physical changes and how to adjust driving to allow for these changes. After completing the class, students will receive a certificate. Some insurance companies operating in Maryland consider drivers who take the course qualified for reduced or discounted premiums.

Space is limited and registration is required. To register online, visit www.montgomerycountymd.gov/library. Go to Branches, then Calendar of Events.

Class registration is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. Fees will be collected at the class. AARP members should bring their membership card and each student should bring a check payable to AARP and a pen to class.

The library’s meeting room is equipped with an audio induction loop system for people who use hearing aid amplification with a telecoil switch or cochlear implants. A limited number of receivers are available for individuals who do not use amplification devices.

To request a sign language interpreter or other deaf/hard of hearing services for library-sponsored programs, email MCPL.DeafAccess@montgomerycountymd.gov, preferably with at least three business days notice.

To request other accommodations, for more information about the meeting room or to receive assistance from staff to register, call the library at 240-777-0110.
