AARP Smart Driver Course
The AARP Smart Driver course is specifically designed for drivers age 50 and older. In many states, drivers may benefit from a discount on their auto insurance premium upon completing the course. More than 90% of car crashes are preventable. Motor vehicle accidents are the #1 leading cause of deaths in adult and children. UMC Trauma and Burn Services has partnered with the AARP organization to provide a four-hour driving course. Class is $20.00 for AARP members and $25.00 for non-members. Check back to this website or contact AARP to see next available class.
