Senior Driving: AARP Driver Safety Classes in Maine

Did you know that insurance companies in Maine are required by law to give discounts to drivers 55 years of age and older who complete a safe driving course at least once every three years?  

If you want to take a four-hour class that will earn an insurance discount, take a look at the AARP Driver Safety Program. The AARP Driver Safety Program in Maine offers classes for drivers 50 years of age and older at numerous locations throughout the state.

The program is the nation’s first and largest classroom refresher course designed to meet the safety needs of mature and experienced drivers.  Offered as a four-hour class at most locations in Maine, it helps drivers learn about defensive driving techniques, new traffic laws, rules of the road and much more. It helps older drivers learn how to adjust their driving to age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time.

The registration fee is $12 per person for AARP members, $14 per person for non-members, and advance registration is required. Class size is limited and registrations are accepted first-come, first-served.

Classes scheduled to date are listed below. However, more classes are are added frequently, so check the website for the latest list of classes in Maine.
