A new AARP Smart Driver course is be­ing of­fered. The class is de­signed for driv­ers older than age 50 to as­sist them in be­com­ing safer driv­ers. Com­ple­tion of the course may qual­ify par­tic­i­pants to re­ceive an au­to­mo­bile in­sur­ance dis­count in Ar­kan­sas.

The course teaches cur­rent traf­fic laws, de­fen­sive driv­ing tech­niques and how to op­er­ate a ve­hi­cle more safely in to­day’s chal­leng­ing driv­ing en­vi­ron­ment. The course also teaches how to man­age com­mon age-re­lated changes in vi­sion, hear­ing and re­ac­tion time.

The course is four hours in length. The cost is $15 for AARP mem­bers and $20 for non­mem­bers. AARP mem­bers should pro­vide their mem­ber­ship card and mem­ber­ship num­ber when mak­ing reser­va­tions by call­ing 479-855-3076.

The next class of­fered in Bella Vista is on Tues­day, Dec. 11, at 8:30 a.m. at Vil­lage In­sur­ance, 2860 Bella Vista Way.
