The Wayne County Area Agency on Aging is sponsoring the drivers training program for motorists age 50 and older. 
The American Association of Retired Persons (AARP) offers these courses each year which results in automobile insurance companies providing a discount to qualifying policy holders who successfully complete the course.  The 8-hour classroom refresher / defensive driving course is open to all drivers 50 & older.  There are no tests and membership in the AARP is not necessary.  All automobile insurance companies doing business in Pennsylvania, are required by state law, to give a discount of at least 5% to all qualified policy holders who take the course.  Check with your insurance agent for details.
 The eight hour class, taught by a volunteer instructor, is given in a two day period in two 4 hour sessions.  The non-refundable fee is $14.00 ($12.00 for AARP members) per person, paid in advance when registering for any class.  All AARP members, please bring your membership card to class.  Payment is made by check or money order payable to AARP.  Class size is limited, so advance reservations are required to assure placement in the class.  Those completing the course will be given a certificate which is valid for three years.  Attendance at both class days is required for certification. Remember to bring your drivers’ license and a pen to class. 
Call the Wayne County Area Agency on Aging at (570) 253-4262 to make a reservation and get directions to one of the classes listed below or if you have any questions regarding these classes.
