This course was developed by the American Society on Aging and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to help people understand the issues relating to older drivers and to independence and mobility in later life. This engaging and interactive class will provide key health promotion information for driver fitness, will teach participants to assess their own driver fitness, and will outline how to improve driver fitness and mobility with the goal of sustaining maximum independence throughout life. The class will also include an optional individual screening of a student’s capabilities for driving. Information provided is only for each individual’s personal reference and is not intended to be a comprehensive assessment of total driver capacity.
