AARP will be offering two “Smart Driver” classes prior to the end of the year. These will be Wednesday, Nov. 7, at Bob Chisholm Community Center in Seaside, 1225 Avenue A and on Thursday, Dec. 13 at Clatsop Community College, 1651 Lexington, Astoria.

Classes will be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with a lunch break. Those attending are encouraged to arrive early to get paperwork completed.

Register through Clatsop Community College at 503-338-2408.

This course is designed for seniors 50 and older, but anyone can attend.

The course includes current rules of the road, defensive driving techniques, and operating your vehicle more safely in today’s increasingly challenging driving environment. Learn adjustments to accommodate age-related changes. Information on aggressive drivers, air bags, seat restraints and new technologies is provided.

Oregon state law provides for a discount on auto insurance premium for most drivers completing this course. Attendance at the entire class is required to receive a certificate of completion.

Cost for the class is $15 for AARP members and $20 for nonmembers. For questions or information call John Benson at 503-738-5925, Email
