Driver Improvement Courses For Seniors

AAA is the leader in driver safety. In fact, AAA invented driver training in 1935.

AAA’s new RoadWise Driver course for seniors can help you keep your skills fresh and get the most out of your vehicle. And applying what you learn could reduce risk to you, your passengers and others on the road.

The course—offered online or in a classroom setting—is packed with the most up-to-date driving techniques and information on the latest vehicle technologies. This could help you maintain your mobile independence and quality of life.

Senior drivers are at a higher risk of having a serious collision per mile driven than any other age group except for those under age 25. Drivers in their late 70s have about the same number of injury-involved crashes per mile driven as drivers in their early 20s. And drivers age 85 and older are injured or killed in crashes at a higher rate than any other age group—due primarily to increased fragility that comes with age.

Benefits related to taking AAA’s RoadWise Driver course include:

  • Knowing the top five most common causes of senior crashes, so you can avoid becoming a statistic.
  • Learning about the latest vehicle technologies, such as adaptive cruise control and lane-departure warning systems, and how to properly use them.
  • Potentially receiving discounts on insurance premiums.
