Senior Citizen Driving Safety Program
The South Portland Police Department, The South Portland/Cape Elizabeth TRIAD, and AARP have partnered to offer an 4 hour class that assists older drivers with the following:
- Tune up your driving skills and update your knowledge of the rules of the road.
- Learn about normal age-related physical changes, and how to adjust your driving to allow for these changes.
- Reduce your traffic violations, crashes, and chances for injuries.
- Drive more safely.
- Get an insurance discount. Auto insurance companies in most states provide a multiyear discount to graduates.
The class size is about 20 people and there aren't any written or driving tests. The cost is $12.00 for AARP Members (AARP member ID number required.) and $14.00 for Non AARP Members.
The South Portland/Cape Elizabeth TRIAD sponsor these classes. The goal is to have 4 classes a year.
To keep with the community policing philosophy, the South Portland Police Department has one officer trained by AARP to instruct this class. Officer Robert Libby is not only an AARP Driving Instructor, but he is Also an AARP Driving Trainer. He also trains other AARP Volunteers, to include police officers, to become AARP Driving Instructors.
The next TRIAD sponsored AARP Driving Class will be held on (To Be Determined)
Refreshments will be provided
