Ocean House, Penobscot Shores, Belfast. Classroom course for drivers age 50 and over, presented by instructor Paul Sheridan. AARP’s Smart Driver curriculum features a research-based workbook and video material. It covers defensive driving, existing and new rules of the road and the impact of recent changes in automotive technology on the driving environment. Also discussed are age-related changes in vision, hearing and reaction time and how to know when it’s time to give up the keys.

Maine drivers age 55 years or older who successfully complete the course qualify for a three-year, state-mandated discount on their auto insurance premiums.
