The Mruk Family Education Center on Aging offers the AARP Driver Safety Course monthly, and the next course is scheduled for Monday, September 12 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the MFECOA on the Baxter Regional Medical Center campus.

Driving has changed since some people got their first driverand#39;s license, and participation in the program could save you money! Participants receive a certificate enabling them for a discount on their auto insurance.

The AARP Driver Safety Course teaches drivers age 50 and older to:

  • understand the effects of aging on driving
  • learn driving strategies that help take into account the changes people experience as they age
  • identify the most common crash situations faced
  • reduce the chances of having a crash
  • be updated on knowledge and understanding of today's roads, vehicles and other road users
  • think about how they drive
  • identify when driving may no longer be safe

The cost of the program is $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members. For more information or to register, call the MFECOA at (870) 508-3880, email, or click here to register online.
