The City of Maryville Police Department’s Community Policing Unit is offering a course that will save on insurance premiums for drivers over 55 years of age, and help to save lives.
The AARP Driver Safety Program is a classroom refresher course especially designed to meet the needs of older drivers. It includes age-related physical changes, declining perceptual skills, rules of the road, local driving problems and license renewal requirements. The course was developed by the American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) in partnership with the International Association of Chiefs of Police and its membership is designed to help older drivers update their knowledge and skills, prevent traffic accidents and violations, and maintain mobility and independence.
The AARP Driver Safety Program will be offered by the Maryville Police Department on Monday, April 14 and Tuesday, April 15 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Classes will be held at the Maryville Municipal Center, 400 West Broadway Avenue. The $10 fee per person, which goes directly to AARP, covers the cost of classroom materials.
