Many auto insurance providers offer discounts to individuals who complete the AARP Smart Driver Course, which is available online and in classroom venues. Some states may restrict online certificates for insurance discounts, so drivers should consult their insurance agents regarding discounts. Some of the topics in the AARP Driver Safety Course review following distance rules, safe lane changes, making turns at intersections, how medications affect driving, and reducing driving distractions.
