The Grand Traverse County Commission on Aging hosts the AARP Smart Driver Course, a classroom driver refresher course for drivers aged 50 and older.

Designed especially for older drivers, the class takes into consideration the physical changes of the maturing driver (such as vision and hearing) and identifies ways the older driver may compensate for those changes. Course material is based on information gained through research to determine what is needed by this age group to update driver knowledge and skills.

There is a fee of $15 for AARP members and $20 for non-AARP members to take the course.

Several major auto insurance carriers in Michigan offer discounts to graduates of the program. Interested persons should contact their carrier to see if such a discount is available.
