There is also a class in Newport at the OCCC Campus in South Beach (Room #140) on July 12 (Tuesday) also from 9 AM to 4 PM. Lunch Noon – 1 PM.
The new 6 hour course has been totally upgraded with a new curriculum that addresses updated driving technologies as well as medical aspects of the aging driver, and other research-based information. Successful completion of the course may entitle you to a discount on your auto insurance.
Through the use of videos and discussions, the instructor will cover many topics, including the new driver and pedestrian laws; changes in vision and hearing as we get older (the aging human brain) and tips for handling these changes; reaction times; driving in inclement weather; collisions and how to avoid them; modern auto technologies; and many more subjects helping those attending to become smarter and more effective drivers.
