AARP’s Smart Driver Course is the successor program to “Defensive Driving” and is approved by New York State for insurance discounts and driver’s license point reduction. Smart Driver is the nation’s largest refresher course designed specifically for older drivers, but it is open to all age groups. The course helps participants update their driving knowledge, skills, and confidence. Research shows that, after completing the course, most people make positive changes to their driving behaviors.

David Stewart is a retired university administrator and former TV and radio reporter. He has been driving for six decades. David has taught almost 150 safe-driving courses, primarily in northern New York.

NOTES: 1) Please arrive at least 20 minutes early! You must bring your NYS driver’s license and, if you have one, your current AARP membership card. Fee: $20 for AARP members; $25 for non-AARP members – pay in exact cash or make your check out to AARP. 2) New York State requires that participants complete the full course to receive a 10% reduction in the base rate of automobile or motorcycle liability and collision insurance premiums for 3 years. You also may be eligible to reduce as many as 4 points from your driving record.
