The Naperville Police Department is partnering with AARP to offer a “Driver Safety Program,” which will take place next week.
This classroom driver refresher course, designed for drivers age 50 and older, has assisted millions of mature drivers to stay safe, according to the Naperville Police Department. The classes will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 9 and Wednesday, Oct. 10 from 8:30am to 12:30pm at the Naperville Police Department. Participants must attend both days.
Topics include: Understanding the normal effects of aging on driving and practical ways to compensate for those changes; driving strategies for the mature driver; identifying the most common crash situations and how to avoid them; and an update on the rules of the road, vehicle accessories, and local traffic hazards. The objective of the course is to help participants drive safer and therefore keep their licenses longer.
There is a $14.00 fee for the course and $12.00 for AARP members. Participants are asked to register in advance by mailing their name, address and phone number, along with a check made out to AARP to:
