Seniors looking to improve their driving skills can sign up for the Smart Driver course presented by AARP at the Germantown Public Library on Thursday, May 7. The four-and-a-half hour course will be presented at the Library from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The library is located at 19840 Century Blvd.
Participants can tune up driving skills, learn safe driving strategies and update knowledge of the rules of the road. The instructor will provide information about normal age-related physical changes and how to adjust driving to allow for the changes. After completing the class, students will receive a certificate. Some insurance companies operating in Maryland consider drivers who take the course qualified for reduced or discounted premiums. There will be a lunch break. Food is not permitted in the library; however there are several eateries within walking distance of the library.
Space is limited. Registration is required and available online. The cost for class materials $15 for AARP members; $20 for non-members. Fees will be collected at the class. AARP members should bring their membership cards and each student should bring a pen and a check payable to AARP.
The library’s meeting room is equipped with an audio induction loop system for people who use hearing aid amplification with a telecoil switch or cochlear implants. A limited number of receivers is available for individuals who do not use amplification devices. To request a sign language interpreter or other deaf/hard of hearing services for library-sponsored programs, email MCPL.DeafAccess@montgomerycountymd.gov, preferably with at least three business days’ notice.
