Driving on today’s roadways can indeed be challenging.  With new entertainment and safety technologies being built into cars, our attention can more easily be diverted from the driving task, or we can depend too much on vehicle technology.  Further, congestion is increasing due to more drivers, and vehicles are becoming more complicated overall.    As you’ll see during this course, the art and science of driving continue to evolve.  Some of yesterday’s techniques are now obsolete, replaced by more advanced techniques.  AAA’s Roadwise Driver is designed to keep you up-to-date on the latest risk-reducing driving techniques. Come and take this course to improve your performance on the roads!

Tuition for AAA Members $20.00   Non-Members $25.00  Call the office @ 742-1030 to register.
