The AARP offers refresher courses for drivers older than 50. This course must be completed before submitting a certificate to your insurance company for a possible rate reduction. Classes cost $14. AARP members receive a $2 discount. Bring your driver's license, AARP membership card and fee to the first day of class, unless you are other wise instructed when you register. To find a class and register, call toll-free 1-888-227-7669 or go to www.aarp.org/drive to get registration information. The AARP also offers an online course in which the same information and strategies are taught. The online course is self-paced and interactive.
