The AARP Smart Driver Course will teach participants safety techniques to reduce the chances of a crash, as well as the effects that aging, medications, alcohol, and health issues can have on driving. Organizers say participants can expect to feel safer and more confident while driving after taking the course. They also say to check with your insurance company to see if completing the course might lower your premiums.
It will be held October 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. with a half-hour lunch break at Community Services of Starke County in Knox. The price is $15 for AARP members and $20 for everyone else.
