BLOOMFIELD — The Davis County AARP Smart Driver Course will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 26 at the McCollum Complex at 608 S. Washington St., Bloomfield.
In 1979, AARP founded “55 Alive” to help keep older drivers independent, safe and confident while on the road. On Jan. 1, AARP Driver Safety launched the new and improved AARP Smart Driver Course, the nation’s largest driving refresher course.
The new and improved course curriculum was designed with the participant in mind, and it is different in many ways from previous editions including:
• A completely new, easy-to-follow format that incorporates adult-learning principles, features reader-friendly print types, full-color pages, an easy-to-follow format and videos to supplement course content.
• New opportunities for participants to learn state-specific information throughout the course in a way that is easy to access and understand.
• All components of the AARP Smart Driver Course have been translated and tested for Spanish-speaking participants.
As a result of evidence-based research findings, the course has been adjusted to include a focus on areas where older drivers could benefit from additional training, including roundabouts, pavement markings, stop sign compliance, red light running and safety issues as speeding and seatbelt and turn-signal use.
