AARP thanks veterans for serviceWritten by Admin
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) Driver Safety Program is offering a free, four-hour classroom course to all veterans and their spouses, regardless of age, from Nov. 1 through Nov. 30.
It will update participants’ knowledge of roads, traffic laws, vehicles, identify the most common crash situations and cover how to reduce the chances of having a crash.
The class is open to non-veterans at a cost of $12 for AARP members and $14 for nonmembers. Instructors will set up a class at a veterans’ meeting place, a local church or community center, if there are at least six participants.
