You can tune up your driving skills and perhaps even save some money on your car insurance, by signing up for AAA Arizona’s new four-hour Mature Driver Course for older adults.  Splendido is hosting one of the first of these courses on Friday, July 26 from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Professional instructor Valerie Vinyard will cover eight different topics, using video segments, group discussion, quizzes, and even a little laughter to cover some memorable points about safe driving.

All instruction takes place in the classroom, with refreshments on hand, courtesy of Splendido. Learn how health issues and aging affect driving abilities; for instance, did you know that a 60-year-old needs twice as much light to see as well as a 20-year-old? Plus, you’ll get up to speed on the latest in vehicle technology, including anti-lock brakes (ABS) and lane-departure warning systems, and how they affect your driving.

Those who complete the course may be eligible for a discount on their auto insurance. You’ll get a certificate of completion before you leave, which you can use to ask your insurance agent about saving money on your policy. (If applicable, discounts last for three years.)

Interested? Pre-register and pre-pay for the course through AAA Arizona. Cost is $11.95 for AAA members and $15.95 for nonmembers. Please register with Valerie Vinyard at 258-0518, or vvinyard@arizona.aaa.com.

Splendido is an all-inclusive community for adults 55 years and better located at 13500 N. Rancho Vistoso Blvd. in Tucson.
