A driver’s test without spending a dime on gas

You don’t have to have a terrible disease to have your life as a driver curtailed.  AAA recently announced that nearly 80 percent of drivers 65 and older take regular medication, yet only about half have talked to their doctors about the impact of these medications to their driving was launched to offer  SeniorDriving.AAA.com to offer assessment tools, expert advice and resources.  It is a 45-minute screening tool on the site that uses short videos and tests to help you assess how aging is impacting your driving.  “Roadwise Rx” allows you to enter your prescriptions to find out how they may impact your driving skills.

AARP is one of several places that offers driver safety classes each month.  For a nominal fee, drivers can take a refresher course and learn about how aging impacts your driving ability and what you can do to reduce the likelihood of getting into an accident.  You can find AARP’s drivers schedule on page 17.
