Attendees are eligible for a discount on their auto insurance premiums
HARRISBURG – In an effort to help older drivers maintain sharp driving skills, Rep. Rob Kauffman (R-Franklin) is once again teaming up with AARP to offer the AARP Smart Driver Course to older drivers living the 89th District in Franklin County. The course is offered on multiple dates throughout the year.

“This is a great course that provides older motorists with tips and techniques to help them become more confident and safer drivers,” said Kauffman. “I am happy to sponsor the Smart Driver Course and encourage senior drivers in the community to consider signing up for the class.”

The AARP Smart Driver Course is offered as a two-day program for first-time attendees and a one-day refresher course for those who have taken the two-day course previously. The one-day refresher is only needed once every three years.

By taking the course, participants will learn the current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and how to operate their vehicles more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment.

The AARP Smart Driver Course is offered at the locations and dates listed below. There are no tests to pass. All classes are held from 8 a.m. to noon. The course costs $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-members paid by check or money order. Space is limited. Register by calling (717) 532-1707.
