BEND, OR -- If you're like many older drivers, it's probably been a while since you've looked through a driver’s manual. Local classes, offered this summer, are designed to help refresh your skills behind the wheel. 

 

Jim Botwinis heads up the AARP courses for drivers over the age of 50. “If it’s been a while since you you’ve maybe read the driver’s manual. Or maybe you’ve been involved in a crash. Or maybe you’ve gotten a couple of citations, it might not hurt to get a little refresher.”
 
He KBND News his class covers The effects of aging on driving abilities, as well as the delicate decision of when to stop driving due to age or injury. “You need to have some mental ability and you need to have some physical ability because both of those are required to drive a car down the road. If you lose one of those pieces, you really need to consider whether you should continue driving.”
 
These courses are held throughout the summer at senior centers in Bend, Redmond and Madras, as well as St. Charles hospital in Prineville. Click HERE for a complete schedule.
