The AARP Smart Driver Course On Thursday, July 16th, beginning at 10AM, the Dorset Church on School Street in Dorset is sponsoring the 4 hour AARP Smart Driver Course.  There will be an hour lunch break at noon and the class will recommence for the last 2 hours at 1PM.  Please bring a sandwich or salad with you; refreshments will be served. The overall look and feel of this  4 hour AARP Smart Driver Course is entirely different from the past courses.  It has been designed to include older adult learning strategies and is now more participant-friendly and easier to follow.  As a result of completing the course, participant’s will learn research-based strategies which can reduce the likelihood of their having a crash–note that since the first of the year older adults have been involved in about 1/3 of the fatalities in crashes in Vermont.  In addition, the course can help to increase a driver’s confidence, know how to drive safely when sharing  the road with other road users, and learn of some of the newest safety and advanced features on today’s cars.  For AARP Members, the fee is $15; for   Non-Members, it is $20.  To sign up for this new and exciting course, please call Estelle at 802-375-4832.
