Mature Drivers

Mature Operator
Classroom/In-Car Lessons

As we age, changes in our strength, mobility and flexibility; vision and scanning skills make us less comfortable and less in-control behind the wheel.

To help maturing drivers tune up their driving skills and refresh their knowledge of the rules of the road, AAA Central Penn offers Mature Operator Classes to provide practical guidance for drivers age 55 and over. (Beginning drivers should see the New Drivers section of this website).

About The Classes

Our classes provide the latest information on visual scanning techniques and driver knowledge requirements. Discussion and class participation are encouraged during simulations of potential traffic problems. Overall, the classes enhance driver confidence, comfort, and safety, through practical guidance for traffic accident protection, while addressing the following critical topics:

  • Communicating Your Intentions to Pedestrians and Other Roadway Users
  • Visual Skills to Use Inside and Outside the Vehicle
  • Speed Adjustment Techniques
  • Developing a Margin of Safety
  • How to Handle Driving Emergencies

Classes are held two days per week at four hours each day, for a total of eight hours. There are no written exams and no on-the-road driving.

Insurance Discounts

Participants who successfully complete the class are eligible for a three-year auto insurance premium discount of up to 5%. Check with your agent for details. If you're not insured by AAA, get a quote now - and find out how affordable our legendary coverage can be!
