- In-person classes have been CANCELLED across the country due to COVID. We hope to have confirmation of a new schedule in the first quarter of 2022 when AARP hopefully determines that classes can be conducted safely for all - Check back in January for a new schedule!
- In the meantime, AARP is offering online classes at aarpdriversafety.org. You get the same information and the same certification to help you save on auto insurance. All from the convenience of your home! The current cost is $29.95 for non-members and $23.95 for members.
Here is information about in-person classes under normal circumstances:
Carson City Senior Center serves as a location for the AARP Smart Driver Course. This course, which is designed especially for drivers age 50 and older, is one of many programs offered by AARP Driver Safety. It is the nation's largest classroom and online driver safety course. Since Nevada is a mandated state another benefit of the class is that attendees will receive a discount on the auto insurance policy cost for 3 years.
To register for this class, call the Carson City Senior Center reception desk at 883-0703. A volunteer receptionist is on duty to take your call Monday through Friday between 9:00am and 2:00pm.
In-person class fee: As of July 1, 2020 the course costs $20 for AARP members and $25 for non members. Fee is payable by cash or check (made out to AARP) on the day of the class.
