AARP Smart Driver Course

As part of our commitment to the people of Brazos Valley, and our belief in the value of education, CHI St. Joseph Health offers the AARP Smart Driver™ Course.

As the nation’s largest driving refresher course for seniors, the AARP Smart Driver™ Course is designed for drivers age 50 and older. This course has given millions of drivers the additional skills and tools they need to drive safely on today’s roads, allowing them to remain independent for many years to come.

An impressive 97% of those who take the AARP Smart Driver™ Course change at least one driving behavior, illustrating the value of the course. And the best part? There are no tests to pass, just useful information to keep you safe while on the road!

New and improved course.

CHI St. Joseph Health is proud to host the AARP Smart Driver™ Course as part of our Community Classes offering. The new and improved course curriculum was designed with each participant in mind. It is different in many ways from previous editions and includes a completely new, easy-to-follow format that incorporates adult-learning principles. It features reader-friendly font types and sizes, full-color pages, an easy-to-follow format and videos to supplement course content.

In addition to a new AARP Smart Driver™ Course curriculum, AARP Driver Safety offers the Driving Resource Center — an interactive online resource for course participants that features tools and activities, including driving simulations, state-specific rules and new vehicle technologies.

You could get an insurance discount for taking the course.

Insurance discounts are available with proof of course completion. Ask your insurance agent for details. It is important to note that completing this course WILL NOT remove traffic tickets from your driving record.

AARP members need to provide proof of membership to get the discounted rate.
