Event Description

The four hour class teaches defensive driving; changes that have occurred since we began driving on roads, our vehicles and ourselves, and strategies we can adopt to deal with these changes to improve our driving skills and avoid crashes, on how age-related cognitive and physical changes affect mature drivers and how they can adjust their driving strategies to maintain their driving longer and safer. The Smart Driver Programs classes are offered by host organizations such as Hills Bank. Participants pay only a nominal materials cost of $20, discounted to $15 for AARP members. The class is conducted in the classroom with no driving or testing. Class graduates will receive a certificate of completion. Additionally, some insurance companies offer auto premium discounts to course participants. Attendees should bring their driver’s license and AARP membership number, if a member, and arrive 15 minutes early for registration.

Those interested should call 319-477-8407 to register. Attendees should arrive 15 minutes early for registration.
