AARP SMART Driver Refresher Course
Driving has changed since you first got your license, and taking the SMART drivers course could save you money. The SMART driver course is presented by AARP Driver Safety to seniors to assist them to stay safe drivers, taking into account all the changes that occur as they age. The course has been completely revised with help from Toyota and MIT Age Lab to provide you the research-based safety strategies to reduce your chance of having a crash. We will review vehicle technology and road changes that did not exist when we first started driving. We will discuss how to adjust our driving to remain driving safely as long as possible. We will review transportation options and discuss when driving is no longer safe. Upon completion of the course, participants will be issued certificates of completion to take to their insurance agents as proof of attending the course.The AARP SMART Driver Course is recognized by Minnesota Driver & Vehicle Services as an approved accident prevention course for drivers 55 years of age and older. Insured drivers 55 years of age or older may be eligible for an appropriate reduction in automobile insurance premium charges valid for three years after completing this course. Please check with your insurance company or agent for any additional requirements for eligibility. Minnesota allows repeat course takers (within the past three years) to take the shorter version of the course. NOTE: North Dakota drivers only need to take the four-hour course, and discounts vary by companies. Payment is required at the time of registration. If you are an AARP member, please have your membership number ready when you register.
