AARP Driver Safety Classes: Sad to say AARP has cancelled all in-person events (Driver Safety Classes) through the end of the year. They intend to revisit this decision in the fall if it appears safe to open classrooms. Virtual classroom courses or workshops have not been approved due to privacy and security concerns. This option is currently being explored and we will post here if any changes.
There is an AARP Smart Driver online course.
