ALTON, IL – The AARP Driver Safety Program is the nation’s first and largest refresher course for drivers age 50 and older. Alton Memorial Hospital and OASIS are holding a program of two half-day sessions Wednesday, Aug. 31, and Thursday, Sept. 1, from 8 a.m. to noon each day.

Taught by AARP instructor, Shirley Wheatley, the sessions will be held in the hospital’s cafeteria meeting rooms. The fee for the program is $12 for AARP members and $14 for non-members, payable to AARP the day of training. AARP/National Retired Teachers Association vouchers are accepted for this program.

This training will help you tune up your driving skills, update your knowledge of the rules of the road, learn about normal, age-related physical changes and ways to adjust for these changes, and reduce traffic violations and chances for injuries. Some insurance companies also offer a discount to participants on their auto insurance.
